Availa®Plus, from Zinpro Performance Minerals®, represents not only a new trace mineral product, but an entirely new approach to foot health management. It has been developed specifically for use in dairy and beef cattle and is designed to help control digital dermatitis from the inside out.
When fed in conjunction with a specific DD formula, research has shown that the minerals found in Availa-Plus can help provide protection against digital dermatitis. This carefully formulated trace mineral program works internally to enhance the animal's ability to resist the disease.
Availa-Plus contains a combination of complexed zinc, manganese, copper and cobalt, plus potassium iodide. The Performance Minerals found in Availa-Plus, when fed as part of a well-fortified diet, have been shown to improve claw/hoof integrity, reproduction/fertility rates, milk quality, average daily gain, feed efficiency/conversion, as well as decrease mortality and reduce veterinary costs. In addition, when an animal has the proper balance of trace minerals it is better able to cope with the challenging effects of stress.
Availa-Plus is built on a unique, patented molecule that consists of one metal ion bound to one amino acid ion – called a metal amino acid complex. Zinpro Performance Minerals are the most bioavailable trace minerals on the market, which means more of the minerals are absorbed by the animal to deliver their full benefit. For 40 years, Zinpro Performance Minerals have delivered positive animal performance responses and a strong return on investment in operations around the world.
