EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., July 30, 2015 – Zinpro Corporation announces its continued sponsorship for the Beef Today Feedlot Cowboy College, which it also supported in 2014. The second annual event will be held Sept. 15-16 and hosted by Farm Journal Media’s Beef Today in Wichita, Kansas.
The educational program is designed specifically for feedlot cattle processing and doctoring crews and others involved in day-to-day cattle care and welfare. Participants will be instructed by industry-leading veterinarians Dan Thomson, D.V.M., Ph.D., director of the Beef Cattle Institute at Kansas State University; Tom Noffsinger, D.V.M., consulting feedlot veterinarian from Benkelman, Nebraska; and Mike Apley, D.V.M., Ph.D., DACVCP, professor, Kansas State University.
Cattle operators attending the conference will learn how to apply best management practices to ensure cattle health and performance and beef quality. Zinpro Corporation long ago established itself as a leader in supporting and providing solutions to improve the wellness and performance of animals in areas such as foot health, immunity, weight gain and feed conversions. The company draws from decades of experience and proven research to develop industry-leading business and nutritional tools for the cattle industry.
Most recently, Zinpro Corporation launched its Step-Up™ App, an educational training tool for locomotion scoring and beef lameness management as part of its Step-Up™ Management Program for the beef cattle industry. Both the app and the lameness management program were created in conjunction with the Beef Cattle Institute and Kansas State University.
