Healthy, efficient dairy cattle generate the greatest returns. Researchers report chromium can enhance milk yield, reproduction, immune response and/or heat stress response compared to dairy cattle not supplemented with chromium.
Kemin recently conducted a thorough meta-analysis of 16 peer-reviewed scientific journal articles that evaluate the impact of chromium supplementation in dairy cattle. The findings not only confirm the benefits of chromium, but also provide a comprehensive statistical analysis of the advantages in production and profitability that dairy producers stand to gain. The data speaks for itself.

Further analysis indicates the likelihood of achieving results on your dairy operation:
The probability of achieving a positive response with chromium supplementation and, ultimately, a positive return on your investment is 100%.
