BioZyme® Introduces Vitalize® Ambassador Whitney DeSalvo

Whitney DeSalvo

(SAINT JOSEPH, Mo., Sept. 14, 2017) Success is the result of working hard and striving to make yourself better than you were the day before. That is why BioZyme® Inc., is excited to announce Whitney DeSalvo, Springfield, Ark., as one of its newest Vitalize® ambassadors. 

“Whitney is probably the best female roper there is,” said Chris Kyle, BioZyme Area Sales Manager representing Arkansas, Louisiana and northeast Texas. “She rides good horses, practices good horsemanship and has more work ethic and drive to be better every day than any other female competitor I’ve ever met.” 

As a Vitalize ambassador, DeSalvo, will represent and promote the brand at various equine events. She is a firm believer in the products and feeds both the Vitalize Equine High Performance pellets and Vitalize Equine Free Choice Mineral to her horses daily. Vitalize Recovery Paste is her go-to product for her roping horse, Becky, after a long haul. She will also help coach younger girls interested in roping at various clinics in the future. 

“It’s a privilege to represent Vitalize and I’m thankful to be a part of these great products,” DeSalvo said. “Without my horse’s being 100-percent, I couldn’t do what I do every day. I like how Vitalize makes my horses look. It makes them feel good, and when they feel good, they perform well.” 

The 22-year-old DeSalvo, whose mom also was a successful rodeo cowgirl, has been roping since she was 8. She is currently leading the standings in both the WPRA and the USTRC Cruel Girl circuit, with a nearly $22,000 lead in the WPRA standings. 

“All three of my horses look better since I started feeding Vitalize. They are staying filled out, and they are staying chilled out, which is the Amaferm® working to make their gut process feel better. I can tell when my mare’s stomach is bothering her, and she doesn’t want to perform, but I haven’t had those problems since I started her on Vitalize,” DeSalvo said.
