Oklahoma State University
Oklahoma State University performed the original research feeding algae to cattle for Don Smith’s DuckSmith Farm Company. OSU is currently testing alternate cattle feed diets for Omega3Beef.

Holding an endowed chair as a Regents professor of Animal Science at Oklahoma State University, Dr. Clint Krehbiel is a world leader in cattle nutrition.

Bledsoe Cattle Company
Bledsoe Cattle Company is a multigenerational family-owned ranching, farming, and cattle feeding operation located near Wray, Colorado. The Bledsoes graze and feed high quality Angus based cattle. Their private 5,000 head feedlot produces outstanding fed cattle that have been marketed primarily to Cargill for over twenty five years. The Bledsoes use feed ingredients grown on their own farm to finish these cattle. After the 280-head demonstration at CSU this Spring, Bledsoe Cattle Company will likely become the first commercial feeder to produce Omega3Beef.
