The molasses water is to give mom energy ..a quick boost after a hard job...the karo syrup will do the same thing but does not have the iron and other minerals, you can add 1/4-1/2 cup-ish to a gallon of water, be sure to offer plain water as well for some goats dont like their water messed with..if you have Nutra Drench you can give her a few good squirts of that as well..I also give it to new borns. 1-2 squirts based on its size...
Happy Kidding!!
