Molasses grass (Melinis minutiflora P. Beauv.) is a perennial grass found in tropical regions. It can be fed fresh or used for pasture, hay, or silage.
Mad Barn's Feed Bank provides nutritional profiles on +3,400 forages, feeds and supplements used in the equine diet. With our free diet formulation tool, this data can be used by horse owners and nutritionists to design balanced feeding programs for horses in their care.

As Fed
Dry matter measures everything in your feed except for the water or moisture content. Because moisture content varies, nutritionists formulate diets on a dry matter basis.

Nutrients Concentration Per 5000 g
Digestible EnergyDigestible energy provides an estimate of the usable calorie content of a feed commonly expressed as megacalories per kilogram or pound (Mcal/kg or lb). 1.8745 Mcal / kg 1.65 Mcal
Crude ProteinCrude Protein is an estimate of the total protein content of a feed based on the nitrogen content. 8.6 % DM 75.7 g
LysineLysine is typically considered the first limiting amino acid in equine diets. It is involved in immune function, metabolism, and making collagen and elastin. 0.24 % DM 2.14 g
CalciumCalcium is important for maintaining strong bones and teeth. It should be provided in a ratio of approximately 1.5:1 Calcium to Phosphorus. 0 % DM 0 g
PhosphorusPhosphorus is a macromineral involved in the maintaining the structure and function of bone. It is also a component of ATP and cell membranes. 0 % DM 0 g
MagnesiumMagnesium acts as a cofactor for over 300 metabolic processes. It is important for muscle and nerve function, bone health, mood regulation and energy production. 0 % DM 0 g
PotassiumPotassium is an electrolyte that help to maintain fluid volume inside cells and cation-anion balance. Exercised horses and horses in hot weather lose potassium through sweat. 0 % DM 0 g
SulfurSulfur is a component of the amino acids methionine and cysteine. It is important for hoof health, joint function, coat quality and metabolic health. 0 % DM 0 g
SodiumSodium is the major electrolyte in the horse's body that regulates fluid levels and nerve transmission. Sodium intake in the form of salt stimulates thirst. 0 % DM 0 g
ChlorideChloride is an electrolyte and is important for the transmission of nerve impulses. It is found in salt (sodium chloride). 0 % DM 0 g
IronIron is a component of hemoglobin in red blood cells, which is responsible for transporting oxygen throughout the body. 0 ppm 0 mg
ZincZinc support many metabolic processes and is involved in coat and hoof quality, immune function and metabolic health. It should be fed in balance with iron and copper. 0 ppm 0 mg
CopperCopper is a trace mineral required for hoof health, coat quality connective tissue, and immmune function. It should be provided in a 3:1 ratio of zinc to copper. 0 ppm 0 mg
ManganeseManganese is crucial for bone formation and antioxidant protection. It is also involved in maintaining healthy joints and supports the production of chondroitin sulfate. 0 ppm 0 mg
SeleniumSelenium is an essential micromineral that works closely with vitamin E as an antioxidant. It is involved in growth and muscle function. 0 ppm 0 mg
CobaltCobalt is reqired to make vitamin B12 (cobalamin). In horses, cobalt is converted to Vitamin B12 by the hindgut microflora. 0 ppm 0 mg
IodineIodine is required to synthesize the thyroid hormones T3 and T4, which regulate the body's metabolic rate. 0 ppm 0 mg
Vitamin AVitamin A (retinol) is made from the precursor beta-carotene. It is important for vision, reproductive health in mares and for maintaining immune function. 0 KIU / kg
