Oregon Patent of the Month – September 2022
The animal industry is incredibly important, especially when it comes to the production of dairy. If we want the best quality dairy products, we have to ensure that the health of the animals are maintained. Specifically, heat stress can cause significant economic losses in animal industries. During heat stress, respiration rates and body temperatures increase, while feed intake, milk yield, and reproduction decrease. This can lead to poor quality dairy and product losses.
Omnigen Research, LLC strives to optimize animal health and wellbeing by providing nutritional solutions to animal industries. They create specialty products, vaccines to prevent disease, and medicated feed additives to meet the growing demand for healthy agricultural environments for animals.
Omnigen Research, LLC has developed a unique composition of ingestible ingredients for preventing and promoting the reduction of heat stress in animals. It is composed of glucan, silica, mineral clay and mannan. This composition can be mixed with the animal’s feed in varying concentrations for up to 200 days, making it safe for long-term use. The ingestion of this composition has been shown to lower overall body temperature, reduce respiration rate, decrease levels of the stress hormone cortisol, and increase milk production in animals. This novel and previously unknown method provides farmers with an accessible, practical, and safe solution to reducing heat stress in animals, leading to an increase in production of high-quality dairy products.
