BISMARCK, N.D., May 30, 2012
BISMARCK, N.D., May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cargill's Loyall®-brand petfoods has been named the official dog food of Delta Waterfowl.
Delta, a leading North American waterfowl conservation group, is partnering with Cargill to offer savings and special promotions on Cargill's Loyall® brand to its members. Cargill will provide support for Delta's scientific research and duck conservation programs.
"We're pleased to be the official dog food for Delta Waterfowl," said Andy Rash, marketing manager for Cargill's Loyall® brand. "We are in full support of its mission, and its science-based solutions to help ensure the future for waterfowl hunting is aligned with our scientific approach to nutrients and metabolism in our Loyall® premium dog food."
Delta Waterfowl members, 84 percent of which own dogs, represent the core of duck and goose hunters in North America.
"We're very excited about this new partnership with Loyall®," says Nick Pinizzotto, chief operating officer of Delta Waterfowl. "It's a unique opportunity to work closely with a high-quality brand from a company that truly understands the importance of our four-legged companions. This is a natural partnership for Delta Waterfowl, and we look forward to a long, productive relationship."
Loyall® Professional formula, for top-performing, competitive canines, and Loyall® High Performance formula, for the demanding nutritional needs of active, hard-working dogs, both contain high levels of nutrients needed for maximum endurance and recovery. The brand's patented Opti-Cook® process optimizes quality and palatability, and helps reduce digestion problems associated with starch.
"We welcome the opportunity to help the Delta Waterfowl membership ensure dogs are better prepared for hunting," said Cargill's Rash. "Because of the increased exercise and physical demands throughout hunting season, many dogs respond well to the higher protein and fat levels in Loyall® Professional and Loyall® High Performance dog food formulas. These products are formulated to promote greater muscle endurance and a faster recovery – useful during times of intensive workouts to keep dogs performing their best."
Delta Waterfowl Foundation is a leading North American conservation organization, tracing its origins to the birth of the wildlife conservation movement in 1911. The Foundation supports research, provides leadership and offers science-based solutions to efficiently conserve waterfowl and secure the future of waterfowl hunting. Delta Waterfowl is based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and Bismarck, N.D.
