We are going through the worst drought in many years. Thankfully we have enough hay to carry us at least 4 or 5 weeks. My Dad always had 2 large tanks of molasses pretty much full. We currently are not filling our tubs of molasses to save some money. Am I making a big mistake by not feeding any molasses?

We don't use the molasses as you have but do use the protein tubs during hay feeding time. You'll have a lot of different opinions on this but I would rather keep the protein tubs out due to hay not being the quality level needed. You should be seeing grass greening up and shouldn't have to worry about the molasses. We've got green grass here in NE Ga and haven't fed hay in over a month.
