Zinpro Corporation Drawing Held At 2012 AAEP Conference: Company Also Makes Donation to The Hoof Project Foundation in Recognition of AAEP Booth Contest

Eden Prairie, Minn. (Jan. 28, 2013) – After attending the 2012 American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) annual conference in early December, Dr. Alisha Olmstead is enjoying the new year with a “lucky” tack trunk, horse blanket and case of ProCare™4, courtesy of Zinpro Corporation.  

Olmstead, a veterinarian from Norco, Calif., was among the nearly 500 entrants in the Zinpro booth drawing at the AAEP trade show. Additionally, for each of the 500 entries, Zinpro Corporation donated $1 to The Hoof Project Foundation, which provides care for horses affected with diseases of the feet in cases where the owners cannot afford optimal care.  

“Zinpro is pleased to support The Hoof Project Foundation,” said Brad Frisvold, Zinpro marketing manager. “We know horses with hoof diseases and other ailments receive superior care from this organization; and like our commitment to providing superior trace minerals in ProCare-4, we have the same desire to help the equine community deliver the greatest level of healthcare to horses in need.”     

During AAEP, Zinpro representatives shared information on ProCare-4, a combination of four proprietary trace minerals (zinc methionine, copper lysine, manganese methionine and cobalt glucoheptonate). These trace minerals benefit horses in various ways, including overall hoof health, hair/coat quality, immune function, digestion and vaccination response.

“In addition to the trace mineral benefits, the unique molecular structure of Zinpro Performance Minerals®, including those found in ProCare-4, makes them the most bioavailable and easily absorbed trace minerals on the market,” Frisvold added.

ProCare-4 is available exclusively in the United States through veterinarians and distributed by MWI Veterinary Supply (www.mwivet.com; 800/824-3703). ProCare-4 is packaged in a two-pound container that provides a 60-day supply. For more information on The Hoof Project Foundation, visit www.hoofprojectfoundation.org.
