Chromium Farm Pack

OptiCare®

Chromium Farm Pack is a blended form of chromium proprionate designed specifically for on farm use. Chromium Farm Pack offers producers flexibility in on farm handling and gives producers control over which cows receive supplemental dietary chromium.

About the Product

The chromium proprionate in Chromium Farm pack allows transition cows to utilize energy efficiently. The primary role of chromium is to activate insulin. Insulin forces glucose that has been created from carbohydrates in feed into tissues where it can be used for energy.

Benefits include an increase in dry matter intake which leads to increased milk production. Feeding Chromium Farm pack to transition cows can reduce circulating non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA) which helps ensure these cows are proportioning glucose efficiently. In turn this can lead to fewer metabolic disorders in early lactation such as ketosis and milk fever. Improved early lactation health has lasting benefits throughout lactation.
