Supplementing chromium from chromium propionate in the diet showed a positive effect on feed conversion ratio and breast meat yield of birds subjected to cyclical heat stress. Chromium supplementation may alleviate the negative effects of stress on growth, performance and carcass traits.
Chromium supplementation has been shown to improve broiler body weight, weight gain and carcass yield by decreasing the impact of stressors experienced by the bird. The objective was to evaluate the effects of chromium propionate (Cr Prop) on broiler performance and livability in a commercial antibiotic free complex. The supplementation of Cr Prop improved average feed conversion ratio by 2 points compared to historical data. Moreover, Cr Prop improved livability by 0.45%.
