Flax Seed Oil for Animals
There has been a renewed interest in using Flax Seed Oil in animal rations as it can be used to alter the fatty acid composition of egg and meat products and, therefore, provide functional health benefits for both the animal and the consumer in food production.
Poultry Broiler Hens (Raised for Meat Production)
Flax Seed Oil can be used to increase the Omega-3 content of the broiler hens without negatively affecting bird performance.
Research in demonstrated an increase of ALA from 30 to 99.4 and 139 mg/100g of white meat when broilers were fed 2 or 4% Flax Seed Oil, respectively.
Flax Seed Oil can be used in all hog rations including the starter ration without negatively affecting performance and maintain the health status of the animal and immune system.
Research has shown that after 60 days of feeding Flax Seed an increase in ALA from 1.14% to 7.89% can be achieved.
Omega-3 enriched pork products are slowly gaining in popularity as they not only deliver Omega-3 fatty acids into our diet but are also reported to result in a juicier and tastier meat product.
Flaxseed in Dairy Rations
Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to improve the reproductive performance of dairy cattle.
However, feeding significant quantities of oil (greater than 5%) directly to ruminants is not practical as it will negatively affect rumen function and, therefore, feed intake and milk production.

We Now Make Flax Seed Flakes
The by-product of cold pressing the flaxseed to extract the oil is flaxseed flakes. At the same time the oil is pressed, the surplus is extracted through a tube where heat is added to form flakes.
These flakes are 28% protein and they’re brilliant for pig and cattle feed
Another major plus for the addition of flaxseed flakes to animal feeds is the high fibre value that it contains. While most other whole grains contain large amounts of one type of fibre, flaxseed contains both soluble and non-soluble fibre.
Recent studies have shown that both types of fibre found in flaxseed are very important in different areas, with the soluble fibre aiding in the circulatory system and the insoluble aiding in the digestive process.
The flakes are sold by PureFlax in one tonne tote (sacks) bags. For more information please contact us.
