Swine

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 potentiates insulin to help pigs more efficiently use glucose in their hierarchy of needs. KemTRACE Chromium is a highly bioavailable, organic source of chromium for all phases of swine production. KemTRACE Chromium, fed to millions of cattle and swine in the U.S. and around the world since its introduction in 2000, is currently registered in more than 30 countries.

KemTRACE Chromium is made in the U.S. and available in two product concentrations:

  • 0.04% - for use in complete diets
  • 0.4% - for use in a premix prior to inclusion in complete diets

 

The difference in performance between the control and the chromium supplemented diets of thermoneutral and chronically heat stressed pigs are displayed below.
