Omega Fields is Gold Level Sponsor of ECIR NO Laminitis! Conference
Newton, WI, August 2, 2011 - Omega Fields® is a proud GOLD LEVEL sponsor of the first annual ECIR NO Laminitis! Conference, to be held August 5-7, 2011 at DeMario Farms in Canastota, NY.
 
Since their beginning in 1999, the worldwide ECIR Group of volunteers has fostered education and research about Equine Cushing's and Insulin Resistance diseases, and helped owners recognize and prevent endocrinopathic (hormonal/metabolic) related laminitis. Laminitis is central to the ECIR Group because it has historically been a precursor to EC and IR.
 
"Omega Fields is happy to support such a worthwhile organization as the ECIR Group," stated Allison Kuhl, VP-Omega Fields. "This group has given hope to so many horse owners by providing them with up-to-date research, education, and support to guide their horses to recovery."

Dr. Eleanor Kellon, V.M.D., co-owner of the ECIR Group, and a long-time proponent of proper nutrition as a defense against and treatment for IR and Cushing's horses, will be one of the conference's keynote speakers.  Kellon's topics will include: The History of Equine Insulin Resistance, How Cushing's and Insulin Resistance Differ, and Achieving Optimum Health and Outcome through Correct Diagnosis, Diet, Trim, and Exercise.
 
Omega Fields' Omega Horseshine® has long been recommended by Dr. Kellon for Insulin Resistance and Cushing's horses because of its high content of Omega-3 fatty acids. She states: "(I) recommend four to six oz. of Omega Horseshine® daily to provide essential fatty acids for IR horses.  At 4:1 Omega-3 to Omega-6, stabilized ground flaxseed is the closest to fresh, live grasses which are often not allowed in the diet. The soluble fiber, lignans, and protein are a plus, too."
 
Other speakers at the two day event will be keynote speaker Robert M. Bowker, V.M.D., Ph.D., delivering a talk about hoof physiology, and the ECIR Group Support Team, discussing "Balanced Nutrition: How We Do It."
