TAS Country : January 26th 2012
Algae a surprise boost to lambs THERE'S something fishy going on in the lamb industry. And scientists working on increas- ing the level of omega-3 fatty acids in lamb believe they have hooked a winner. The scientists, from Victoria's De- partment of Primary Industries, have achieved a world first --- boosting the omega-3 levels in lamb by adding a small amount of algae into hay. In the trial, lambs were fed 20g of an algae supplement daily for eight weeks, leading to a 240 per cent increase in healthy omega-3 fats in the lambs' muscle. The boosted levels mean a 135g serve of lamb provided more than the mini- mum recommended daily amount of omega-3 acids for women, and 80 per cent of what is recommended for men.
