Hi

Is it ok for Kune's to eat a chuff/chop with molasses ?

1 person recently told me molasses is bad for them , is this true ?

Many thanks

I have not heard anywhere that it is bad for them but would think that, as kunekune tend to become fatties, you would need to carefully monitor the affect the feed had on their condition.

I feed beet pulp to my sows for two to three weeks before they farrow to keep them regular and to keep energy levels high (as instructed by my vet).

There maybe other considerations I am not aware of though?
