Essential to Your Feedlot

Chromium supplementation has been shown to positively impact efficiency and provide important nutritional benefits in feedlot cattle. Feedlot operators lower costs while achieving optimal performance with KemTRACE Chromium – a highly bioavailable, organic source of chromium for cattle. KemTRACE Chromium is the only chromium source permitted by the FDA for use in 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.
