Forage Starô products can be described as a 100% lickable consumption controlled energy, protein, vitamin, and mineral supplement fortified with enzymes.

Forage Starô products are truly unique in a lot of ways. The Hudson Continuous Flow process allows for consistency and efficient nutrient delivery to livestock. Pure cane molasses and vegetable oil are put through a heat dehydration step that reduces moisture content. The continuous flow of the pure cane molasses through the cooking process also allows for even crystallization and increased energy intake.

Other nutritional ingredients are blended into the taffy candy during the cooling phase. This allows the taffy candy and the dry ingredients to be blended into a stable mix assuring an absolutely consistent nutrient profile throughout. The evenly mixed product is then poured into various sized containers. The crystallized product then cools to a hardened state.

How is consumption regulated in Forage Starô cooked molasses tubs?
In that Forage Starô supplements are a low moisture product, they act like hard rock candy you would buy in the store. If you leave a piece of hard rock candy on the kitchen counter for an hour or so and come back and pick it up, it will be sticky. This is because it has drawn moisture from the atmosphere. The only difference in Forage Starô and hard rock candy is that before it hardens nutrients are added to it. So the number of tubs or surface area sitting in the pasture available to draw moisture from the atmosphere in relationship to the number of animals licking on it regulates consumption. It is important to go by the feeding instructions, because if too few tubs are placed in the pasture animals will not get the nutrients that they need. On the other hand, if too many tubs are placed in the pasture, animals will over consume. Generally, on all FS protein supplements one tub to 25 head will achieve a .5 to .75 of a pound per-head per-day consumption, which is all that cattle need.
