Essential to Your Dairy Operation

Dairy producers address nutritional deficiencies in their dairies by adding KemTRACE Chromium – a highly bioavailable, organic source of chromium, to the ration. KemTRACE Chromium is the only chromium source permitted by the FDA for use in dairy cattle.

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.

How does chromium impact my animal and operation?

An animal needs chromium to optimize the insulin response which impacts glucose metabolism and creates cellular energy. Insulin does not function properly if an animal has a chromium deficiency and deficiency can lead to significant energy loss. Chromium allows cows to use energy efficiently.

Feedstuffs are broken into fatty acids. Fatty acids are converted to glucose in liver. Glucose is the energy source for animals.

What can a dairy cow do with more energy?

  • Reduce negative energy balance
  • Improve immune function
  • Improve reproductive efficiency
  • Increase milk yield
  • Increase feed efficiency
  • Withstand effects of heat stress
