Amid the recent controversy surrounding feed company ADM Alliance Nutrition, Elisa Wallace has elected to discontinue her sponsorship after waiting for weeks for an acceptable response from the company.

Elisa posted the following statement on her Facebook page:

“As some of you may know, I was sponsored by ADM and was an ambassador of their feeds. I have decided to relinquish my sponsorship, in light of the actions, or lack thereof, of ADM in the monensin contamination cases. Trust is imperative in any relationship and I feel that has been lost. My horses come first over any sponsorship and horse owners should not have to worry about feeding their horses poison. Monensin should not be in horse feed. Period!”

As horse owners struggle with the effects of contaminated feed from ADM, numerous horses from several barns are undergoing continuous testing, treatment, and monitoring after their feed came back from testing showing the presence of monensin. You can read about the cases EN has covered using the links below and, as always, we’ll continue to bring you the most up to date information as it becomes available.
