In 2006, Pete and Cindy Woltz sold a family owned commercial feedlot and started the High in Omega 3 beef Timber Ridge Cattle Company. Timber Ridge Cattle Company said, Good-Bye to the antibiotics, hormone treatments, optimized pen space and maximized cattle gains and said, Hello to pasture raised, all natural, high in omega 3 healthy animals.
Published studies at that time by Kansas State University showed significant improvement in herd health by adding flax seed to the cattle's ration. The flax seed ration increased the amount of Omega 3 Fatty Acids in the beef. Timber Ridge Started implementing these feeding practices along with our strict no hormone, no antibiotic and no feed additive (ionoshores) policy. the results were encouraging. Our first Flax Fed Beef tested by the Iowa State University showed a 300% increase in the Omega 3 Fatty Acid and a 5:1 Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio.
Today, Timber Ridge has partnered with the NBO3 feed supplement company out of Manhattan, Kansas. NBO3 is the creators of the patented revolutionary feed additive.
The GreatOTM feed supplement not only contains the short chain Omega 3 fatty acid ALA from flax seed or from grass (as in grass fed beef), it also contains the long chain Omega 3 fatty acid EPA, DHA and CLA from sea algae (which is what oily fish contain). It is the sea algae that offers the healthier Omega 3 DHA for brain cognitive development, EPA for reducing inflammation and CLA to help fight cancer.
The Timber Ridge continues to regularly test our products. Our current tests show a healthy ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 at 4:1. This is the same ratio as the Mediterranean diet. And each of Timber Ridge's 4 oz. serving of 80/20 contains 100 mg Omega 3 and 6 mg of EPA and DHA. For more great nutritional test results visit Our Key Benefits page.
Timber Ridge wants to thank you for your support!
