Keep in Mind...

Not all trace minerals perform in the same manner. In order for trace minerals to be of use to an animal, they must possess the following attributes: solubility, stability, absorbability, and be metabolically available.

If a trace mineral fails to meet any of these attributes, it will offer significantly less benefit to the animal and may not improve animal performance.

We are raising the bar in animal health supplementation!

Zinpro Performance Minerals®…

Zinpro Performance Minerals®…

Thorne Bottom Farm’s, K.I.S.Trace® and Ru-Min Pro, are derived from Zinpro Performance Minerals®.

Zinpro manufactures their minerals via a unique, proprietary process in which trace minerals are bound to an amino acid ligand. Zinpro’s patented minerals utilize a unique pathway for absorption through the highly active amino acid transporters, which allow the trace minerals to be efficiently absorbed and utilized by the animal.

This results in a higher delivery of trace minerals to all organs, tissues, and enzyme systems. To learn more about trace mineral nutrition, visit essentialfeed.zinpro.com.

By laying its foundation with Zinpro Performance Minerals®, Thorne Bottom Farm has developed the gold standard for equine and ruminant nutrition supplementation!
