Montana State University 406 Labs venture receives grant to produce 'super crickets' for heart health

August 14, 2017View for printing

A venture supported by Montana State University's 406 Labs, Cowboy Cricket Farms, has received a $57,384 grant from the Montana Board of Research and Commercialization Technology , with matching funds from the company.

The grant will be used to develop and test a new proprietary process for selectively breeding a "super cricket" with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids. The owners of Cowboy Cricket Farms, James and Kathleen Rolin, hope to augment the current fish oil market with a new product that produces higher contents and quality of these fatty acids with less impact on the environment.
