Linseed meal is an excellent protein supplement for use in dairy rations and can be used as the sole protein supplement in the concentrate. It is highly palatable and does not affect dry matter intake. The protein quality for dairy is similar to canola meal and ranks higher than other commonly used protein sources such as soybean meal, brewers dried grains, and feather meal (Arambel and Coon, 1981). Expel- ler-processed meal contains higher levels of fat and, therefore, energy (Table 8) but has a higher rate of ruminal crude protein degradation. Solvent-extracted meal is often the preferred source for dairy rations as it has a higher level of ruminal by-pass protein due to protein denaturation during desolventization, but it still retains a high level of total tract protein digestibility (Khorasani et al. 1994) and, therefore, sup- ports high levels of milk production, milk fat, and protein content.

Flaxseed and meal have traditionally been used primarily in equine and bovine diets and laying hen rations. However, flax can be included in poultry diets if used in the proper proportions and formulated appropriately. Several companies are now marketing poultry products that are enriched in omega-3 through the feeding of flaxseed. The most popular commercial product is omega-3 eggs available in most grocery stores throughout North America. Research is also being conducted with flax to produce omega-3 enriched poultry meat products.

Flax products can be fed to swine; however, it has traditionally been directed into ruminant diets. Due to recent interest in the production of meat products enriched in omega-3 fatty acids and the potential to improve sow productivity and piglet health, flax products are now being used in swine diets with increasing frequency

Linseed meal can be used effectively as a protein source for beef cattle at all stages of life. It is very pal- atable with a high protein and energy content (Table 8) and can be used as the sole protein supplement. Similarly, whole fat flaxseed can be used in beef rations as a source of protein, energy and omega-3 fatty acids.

Flax products are commonly used in horse rations and are often the preferred source of protein. Flax can be used as the sole protein supplement comprising as much as 15% of the dry matter in the diet. The lysine content of the meal is too low, however, for young developing horses (Hintz et al., 1971) and will need to be supplemented into the diet to maximize growth and development. Ground flaxseed or expeller-processed meal are thought to impart a glossy coat to the animal due to the oil content. Linseed meal is highly palatable and the mucilage also acts as a mild laxative and helps prevent digestive upset such as colic. Flax oil, ground flaxseed or expeller-processed meal can also be used as a source of essential fatty acids in the diet.
