Newton, WI, June 21, 2012 – ENRECO®, Inc. announced today that it has completed the sale of its flaxseed milling and bulk distribution assets, retaining its Omega Fields® retail products distribution division which markets Omega-3-rich supplements for equine, canine, poultry and human nutrition. Grain Millers, Inc. of Eden Prairie, MN assumed ownership of ENRECO intellectual and physical property, excluding Omega Fields, on Wednesday, June 20, 2012.
 
"The decision to divest the ENRECO milling operations to Grain Millers was one that I believe was the best to ensure the accomplishment of our mutual goals of growing the flax based ingredient opportunity," said Sean Moriarty, ENRECO and Omega Fields president. Now, with all of our energies and resources focused on the Omega Fields retail supplements segment, we can better support our distributors and retailers, bolster our R&D efforts, and have a much greater effect in the market."
 
Omega Fields supplements will now be manufactured by Grain Millers, but in the same facility as before and to the same levels of quality and food safety. The flaxseed going into their supplements will continue to be SQF 2000, Level 3-certified, as before – the highest level of food quality and safety in the industry. 
 
ENRECO, Inc. and Omega Fields, headquartered in Newton, Wisconsin, serves human and animal nutrition markets worldwide and are dedicated to providing nutritional retail supplements defined by excellence in innovation, quality and customer service.
 
ENRECO was a pioneer in the development of nutritious flaxseed ingredients rich in Omega-3s, fiber, antioxidants and other nutritional benefits. The company provided ground, whole-grain, non-GMO flaxseed, sorghum and other ingredients to food and nutritional products industries, and produced Omega Fields retail products for human and animal consumption.
 
Always the innovator, ENRECO created processing systems to triple-clean their product, was the first to develop proprietary stabilization technologies allowing a guaranteed minimum shelf life of two years, and was the first to employ a third party-validated, 5-log Kill Step for lowest pathogen and microbial values.  The company's flaxseed ingredients are audited to SQF 2000, Level-3 standards to ensure product quality and safety.
 
Grain Millers, Inc., founded in 1985, is a leading manufacturer of conventional and organic whole grain ingredients used in cereals, breads, snack bars and many other products served around the world. Grain Millers, Inc., now operating out of eight locations throughout North America, has four divisions: grain, dairy, specialty products, and Agricor, its dry corn milling operation.

Newton, WI, May 15, 2012 – Don Schrider, Omega Fields® poultry spokesperson, was a featured lecturer and exhibitor at the recent Fancy Feathers Show in Dayton, OH, April 28-29.

Schrider spoke to adults and 4-H members about the selection, care and feeding of poultry to obtain the body mass, feather gloss and sheen necessary for winning at poultry shows. Schrider awarded bags of Omega Ultra Egg™ from Omega Fields® to Brandi Powell, the winner of Champion Junior Large Fowl on an Australorp cockerel; Seth Tumlin, Champion Junior Bantam winner; and five lucky winners of a drawing held at the Omega Fields booth.

One of the winners of the Omega Ultra Egg drawing was Mark Atwood of North Carolina, who amazed all by taking both Super Grand Champion of Show with a Bantam Single Comb Light Brown Leghorn pullet and Reserve Super Grand Champion of Show with a Large Fowl Single Comb Light Brown Leghorn pullet.

Other winners of the drawing were Bud Blankenship, Evan Edingfield, Jerry Powell, and Kathy Gratsch.

 

When not speaking about his favorite topic – chickens - Schrider was at his booth teaching the benefits of supplementing poultry diets with Omega-3 from Omega Fields' Omega Ultra Egg. The perfect ratio of Omega-3, -6, and -9 essential fatty acids found in Omega Ultra Egg promote brilliant plumage, better health and Omega-3-rich eggs with strong shells. Omega Ultra Egg is the superior supplement with the best, whole-ground flaxseed high in Omega-3, folic acid, vitamin E, and vitamin B-12. It is milled using only whole, intact flaxseeds for optimum nutritional value and freshness, using proprietary stabilization technology to maintain full nutritional value, guaranteed for 18 months.

"For many folks, this was the first opportunity to discover Omega Ultra Egg," said Schrider. "[They] realized quickly the benefits Omega Ultra Egg could give to the sheen on the plumage of their birds. It was surprising, though, how many folks that show birds were interested in the health benefits of the eggs from Omega Ultra Egg."

Over 1200 birds were exhibited at the show, which drew 39 junior exhibitors, 128 exhibitors overall and attendees from many Eastern, Southern and Central  states. The show was the site of an American Poultry Association Meet and the National Meet for the American Brown Leghorn Club. There were four judges, including one from Canada.

Both large and bantam chickens were exhibited in a wide array of breeds and colors. There were also turkeys, geese, ducks and guinea keets.
