  • 0.04% - for use in complete diets

Essential to Your Broiler Operation

Stress is a major factor diverting energy and reducing performance. Reducing physiological impacts of stress is key to improving performance.  During times of stress, cortisol is released which can negatively impact many biological factors. In poultry, supplemental chromium has been shown to decrease cortisol levels during times of stress.2,3
