Frequently Asked Questions

Why is hoof and horn health important?

Hoof health is vital to production; a lame animal will not move to find forage resulting in decreased weight gain, and will also not seek to reproduce. Infections have a negative impact on the production levels of the animal and also increase costs, therefore prevention is key through supplementation.

What is ZinMet®?

ZinMet® is an organic, highly available complex of the amino acid methionine and zinc that will bypass rumen degradation making ZinMet® more readily available for absorption through the gastrointestinal tract.

What are the benefits of having ZinMet® in Hoof and Horn?

As ZinMet® is more readily available for absorption by the animal, it can be of greater benefit in terms of hoof health. Zinc is involved in wound healing, epithelial tissue repair, hoof hardness, maintenance of cellular integrity and hoof lamina, as well as stimulating keratin production.

Why use a granular loose lick?

Animals have greater access due to increased surface area with the loose lick ensuring that every animal can easily access the supplement. It is also easier to consume as there is no licking a hard block and animals do not forfeit vital grazing time.
