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.

Imagine a bright spring day. You excitedly turn your horse out to indulge in the fresh spring grass as a special treat. You return in a few hours to collect your companion, but instead are met by an unhappy painful horse, slowly limping its way back to the gate. Sound familiar? Unfortunately for some owners, this is an all too real scenario. Many horses suffer from carbohydrate sensitivities, or metabolic syndrome, which make them extremely susceptible to changes in carbohydrates in the diet.Read More

Posted in Horse Articles Articles Dr. Kris Hiney By Dr. Kris Hiney

 

Newton, WI, July 29, 2011 – Omega Fields® and Kristina Hiney, Ph.D., are pleased to release a series of articles discussing lipid nutrition for horses. The series discusses how fat is digested and handled in the equine, the types of fats fed to horses, and the many beneficial effects that can be realized through the addition of fat to the diet of our horses.
 
Besides being necessary for normal body function, the benefits of adding fat to the equine diet are many, including meeting the animal’s caloric needs in a more efficient and beneficial manner, enhancing a horse’s performance, lowering digestive risk associated with a diet higher in high energy cereal grains, lowering heat production of horses living in hotter climates, and producing a calming effect on horses.
 
Perhaps more than the owners of other animals, horse owners tend to want to know about what is best for the health and welfare of their animals. They learn from their veterinarians and farriers, and search for advice from experts like Dr. Hiney, desiring more in-depth knowledge of how their horses grow and develop in order to decide what’s best for them. The Lipid Nutrition Series is just the latest in a succession of articles authored by Dr. Hiney for the benefit of the horse owner.
 
Dr. Hiney is a professor of Equine Nutrition and Exercise Physiology, University of Wisconsin—River Falls and Omega Fields’ Equine Nutrition Advisor. She has authored or co-authored seven peer-reviewed publications as well as numerous abstracts. She is also a member of the American Quarter Horse Association, the National Reining Horse Association (where she is a carded judged), and the North Central Reining Horse Association.  She trains and shows her own horses in the reining horse industry. Dr Hiney is a monthly contributor to Omega Fields’ Health-E-Letter, writing about all aspects of equine health.

The Benefits of Flaxseed

November 30, 2010 5:14:19 PM CST

Is flaxseed the new wonder food? Preliminary studies show that flaxseed may help fight everything from heart disease and diabetes to even breast cancer. Flaxseed may be on everyone's lips -- and in everyone's cereal -- but this new darling of the plant world has been around for more than 4,000 years, known even in the days of Hippocrates for its healthful benefits.Read More
