Thanks
There is livestock grade ground molasses. No sticky mess.

We feed Empower for weight gain - it's a pelleted rice bran.

You can feed up to 2 cups a day of rice bran for weight gain. 1 cup is usually standard practice, but 2 cups won't hurt, as long as she'll eat it.

If you end up switching, just post on your facebook or craigslist that you want to sell it cheap. Many goat producers use rice bran too.
