whilst we try and feed organic, ethically raised animals, financially this isn't always a viable option. so when feeding feedlot raised animals do you supplement or feed in a different manner?

Feedlot Raised Animals
Posted 28 December 2015 - 03:38 AM
Welcome! I'm really not real familiar with the way feedlot animals are raised and fed, but I know I feed a good bit of commercially raised animals, and they tend to to be lacking in omega 3's, so I supplement fish oil for that. I would think a feedlot animal would be similar, and that you would need to add fish oil for omega 3.

Grass fed only red meats naturally contain enough omega 3's, so if that's all you feed in the way of red meats, you don't need to supplement with fish oil. Most commercial raised meats are grain fed as well, so you need to supplement the omega 3. Feedlot animals are fine to feed, but they probably have been fed all grain, and kept in poor conditions. So I would add fish oil several times a week to supplement. I don't think you would need to add any other supplements.
