KemTRACE® Chromium for Swine Heat Stress
Do your pigs have everything they need to stay healthy and productive during the hot months of summer? If chromium supplementation isn't part of your summer ration, the answer is no.
The swine industry loses between $299 and $316 million per year in profits due to heat stress.1
When pigs are exposed to prolonged heat stress conditions, they release cortisol — a stress hormone — which can lead to reduced feed intake, reduced finishing weights and, ultimately, reduced profits.
