Cold milled flax is a beneficial, nutrient-dense feed ingredient for all animals and an excellent source of the essential fatty acids (EFAs) provided by Omega-6 and Omega-3 fat. EFA’s are required for satisfactory health but are unable to be naturally produced by the animal and need to be added to the diet. Including these EFAs in your animal’s diet may help maintain a healthy skin and coat, support a strong immune system, maintain healthy joints and muscles, and promote healthy digestion. When used correctly, cold milled flax has shown a number of animal-specific benefits which can translate into healthier animals.

Outlaw Feed sources high quality product from the most reputable suppliers. Cold milling is a proprietary process in which whole flax seed remains at room temperature throughout the entire milling and packaging process and is stored away from heat and light sources. This unique process does not crush, grind, or extract the flax oil from the seed which leaves the beneficial nutrients and Omega-3 fats intact while converting the seed into a more palatable and digestible format with a shelf life of up to 2 years.
