Mineral premix targets hoof health

Published on: Dec 17, 2013
Zinpro Corp. has introduced Availa-Plus, which provides U.S. dairy and beef producers with an entirely new approach to foot health management. Availa-Plus, when fed as part of a specific premix formula (DD Premix Formula), offers a novel nutritional solution to help provide protection against digital dermatitis (commonly known as hairy heel warts) by helping animals resist the development of painful lesions in contaminated environments. Availa-Plus contains a unique combination of complexed zinc, manganese, copper and cobalt (from Zinpro Performance Minerals), plus potassium iodide.
