Essential to Your Swine Operation

It’s essential for pigs to be able to efficiently use the energy provided in the feed. This is particularly important when feed intake is compromised during periods of stress, extreme temperatures, or immune challenges. KemTRACE® Chromium is a highly bioavailable, organic source of chromium for all phases of swine production.

Bioavailability Matters When Selecting Minerals

Higher bioavailability ensures more of the nutrient is available in a form the animal can use for optimal nutritional benefits.
