We don't have our own milk goats anymore but we do buy raw goats milk (4 gallons a week). We have discovered this combo and love it around here. It's great for when the milk starts to turn and really covers the off taste well. I've also that found that often those with an aversion (in their head usually) will drink goat milk with molasses in it. My kids pretend it's their iced coffee and that is what it tastes like, unless you add lots. We use blackstrap molasses as it's cheap and high in many minerals.
Too much can cause ketosis, I believe, someone correct me if I am wrong. But we always give it to a doe who has just kidded (in some warm water) to help her gain back depleted energy and something. Hows that for a novice answer?
LOL! I mean we drink the molasses! Not sure if its good for the goats or not. Sugar is sugar even if it's a healthy one. We usually try to only drink it when milk starts to turn or for a special treat and then I only add just the least amount to flavor it that I can. Sorry for the confusion
