KemTRACE® Chromium - Award for Innovation 2022 Entry

KemTRACE® Chromium is a water soluble, highly bioavailable, organic source of chromium propionate that helps improve glucose utilization and reduce the negative impacts of stress for improved health and performance. This results in better animal maintenance, reproduction, growth, and immunity. When feed prices are extremely challenging like today, Chromium becomes even more relevant for animal nutrition as glucose utilization for production is optimized.

Kemin has entered this innovation into the ALFA Award for Innovation 2022, proudly supported by Integrated Animal Production. The winner will be announced at the ALFA BeefEx22 Conference in October. Read on to find out more about this innovation within the feedlot industry.

Tell us, how is the innovation original/innovative?

KemTRACE Chromium is supported by more than 20 years of Kemin research and is the only U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reviewed form of chromium propionate. Recently, the 7th edition of Nutrients Requirements of Dairy Cattle (NRC) reports that Chromium is an essential nutrient for cattle and this independent research consortium also supports chromium propionate i.e., KemTRACE Chromium. The originality of Kemtrace Chromium stems from the facts that Kemin has been a pioneer in the industry to research chromium propionate and develop a high quality product over the years.

So, how does it benefit the Australian Lot Feeding Industry?

Research conducted with beef cattle has shown that KemTRACE Chromium supplementation minimizes the negative effects of the stress response by consistently decreasing serum cortisol during stressful periods, enhanced carcass characteristics, increased feed efficiency, increased feed and greater hot carcass weight.. Stronger, healthier, more productive animals that can achieve their genetic potential will surely benefit from Chromium metabolically, in all stages of production. In this context, KemTRACE Chromium is essential and helps beef cattle in Australia optimize energy use and efficiency. It’s essential to them. Essential to you.

And how does it integrate into Australian Lot Feeding operations?

Kemin is the science behind the healthier cattle. All chromium is not created equal. KemTRACE Chromium is:

  • Fed to millions of animals around the globe since its introduction in 2000

  • Registered in more than 35 countries worldwide

  • Supported by more than 20 years of Kemin research

  • Integrated into the Australian marketing since 2004, the product is easily added into the feedlot ration via the mineral premix.
