Zinpro Corporation long ago established itself as a leader in bovine foot health. The company draws from decades of experience and proven research to develop industry-leading tools for the cattle industry.
Most recently, Zinpro Corporation established the Step-Up™ Management Program for the beef cattle industry, in conjunction with the Beef Cattle Institute and Kansas State University. Launched in 2013, the Step-Up Management Program provides a systematic approach to identify and manage beef cattle lameness. It includes an innovative four-point locomotion scoring system specifically developed for beef cattle.
