Kemin Swine Nutrition Webinar Series

Examining the use of chromium in swine production

Join us for a three-part webinar series where we will take a comprehensive look into swine nutrition with some of the industry’s sharpest professionals. Together, we will review recent research on the common stressors in commercial swine production and their potential impact on health, productivity and welfare. Following will be an analysis of chromium supplementation and it’s impact on sow productivity and insulin function.


Part 1: Assessment and mitigation of physiological stress in swine

May 23, 2023 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CST


Dr. Jay Johnson

In this webinar:

  • What are potential stressors that pigs face in commercial production systems?
  • How can scientists and swine producers best determine when pigs are undergoing physiological stress?
  • Are there options to reduce or eliminate the impacts of physiological stress on pig health, productivity, and welfare?
  • What does KemTRACE® Chromium do to alleviate stress in pig production?




Part 2: Chromium supplementation and why source and quality matter

July 27, 2023 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CST

Speaker: Dr. Jerry Spears | North Carolina State University

In this webinar:

  • Chromium propionate characteristics on chemical structure, stability, absorption, and efficacy on glucose clearance
  • Chromium propionate and its approval with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
  • Description of trivalent chromium and the differentiation with hexavalent chromium and its toxicity
  • Chromium as an essential nutrient and its concentration in feedstuffs
  • Chromium interaction with other minerals in the diet



Part 3: Chromium in mineral nutrition and the sow as a model

In this webinar:

  • Chromium mode of action on glucose kinetics and insulin sensitivity
  • Sow glucose metabolism in gestation and its transition to lactation and milk production
  • Relationship among voluntary feed intake, insulin sensitivity and reproductive function in the sow
  • KemTRACE® Chromium in sow production: Opportunities on sow performance and responses to KemTRACE Chromium in the sow
