Welcome to Kauffman's Animal Health, Inc., the home of KA-HI Equine Nutritional Products and LIRA Animal Health Products.
Founded in 1978 by Leon J. Kauffman, Kauffman's Animal Health, Inc. is a family-oriented business that manufactures, packages, and markets a complete line of nutritional supplements, feed premixes, and specialty nutrition products for the equine, dairy, canine, poultry, and livestock ( beef cattle, sheep, swine, goat, deer, etc.) industries. Initially focused on protein, vitamin, and mineral supplements for horses, our business has expanded to include electrolyte, hoof, joint, and digestion supplements for horses; a variety of direct-fed microbials (DFM or probiotics) for livestock; and nutritional supplements for dogs.
I decided to find a farrier to barefoot trim our horses and make it a little easier on ourselves. I found someone who came well recommended and we had our first appointment yesterday. I had explained to him that I wanted to leave my horses barefooted as they have been this way for years and I have not experienced any negative aspects of keeping them this way even though I do some tough trail riding over some very rocky areas. Before he trimmed the boys he talked to me about using hoof boots if the boys seemed to be wearing their feet excessively or tender. I didn’t really comment because I have never really had to use them due to not having any issues. He trimmed Tenacious then Chic. He got half way through trimming Hank when he looked up and said, “ All three of your horses have incredible feet. Really healthy, tough feet that are pliable and strong. I can understand now why you don’t use shoes or boots.” At that point I had to tell him why I think my horse’s feet are so healthy- KA-HI, Integri-Hoof, and Flex Steps.
