Chromium for Turkeys

What is KemTRACE® Chromium?

KemTRACE® Chromium – the first product of its kind on the market – is a water soluble, highly bioavailable, organic source of chromium that helps improve glucose utilization and reduce the negative impacts of stress for increased cellular energy and function. This results in improved growth and performance in turkeys. KemTRACE Chromium has been fed to millions of animals around the globe since its introduction in 2000. It is registered in more than 35 countries worldwide and is the only U.S. Food and Drug Administration-reviewed form of chromium propionate.

KemTRACE® Chromium-OR — an OMRI Listed®, organic-compliant form of chromium propionate — is also available in the U.S. for use in organic broiler diets.

KemTRACE Chromium and KemTRACE Chromium-OR are manufactured in the U.S., sourced from U.S.-based raw materials and are 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

Essential to Your Turkey Operation

According to recent studies, turkeys fed KemTRACE Chromium had greater average daily gain (ADG) and tended to gain more efficiently than those not receiving supplemental chromium. 1 In response to stress, corticosterone – a stress hormone – is released by the bird’s adrenal gland. The release of corticosterone can have a negative impact on many biological factors such as metabolism and growth. Chromium decreases the presence corticosterone in the blood, thereby reducing the negative impacts caused by stress and allowing the bird to reach its full genetic potential.
