What is Chromium Propionate

  

Water soluble, highly bioavailable, organic source of chromium that helps improve glucose utilization and reduce the negative impacts of stress for increased cellular energy, function, and milk production.

  

improved maintenance, reproduction, growth, and immunity.

What makes our Chromium different

  

Nutrilock® Chromium is 100% manufactured in USA and utilizes a proprietary technology to reduce hexavalent Cr to significantly lower levels than any other product’s published levels

Chromium is an essential ingredient

Of the 30 published studies (~8mg Cr fed), about a third of the time cows did not significantly increase milk yield, about a third of the time cows increased milk yield 3-6 pounds, and about a third of the time cows increased milk yield greater than 6 pounds. Dry matter intake usually increased concomitantly. Increased milk pays the bills and any improvement in immune function is ‘icing on the cake’.

Chromium and the transition period

  

To ensure adequate glucose is partitioned to the fetus, colostrum, and early lactation milk production, cows are insulin resistant in late gestation and early lactation. Because Cr can influence insulin resistance, most studies with dairy cows start supplementation a few weeks before calving and continue for one or two months after calving.

  1. Early lactation cows(about7weeksoflactation) were used in a titration study with Cr supplementation rates of 0, 4, 8, and 16 mg/d. They found linear increases (slope = 0.16 kg milk/mg Cr) in yields of milk, milk fat, and milk protein (Wu et al., 2021).
  2. Transition cows (-3to4 week of lactation) fed approximately 0, 4, and 8mg of Cr/d. Postpartum DMI and milk yield linearly increased (0.3 kg milk/mg Cr) (Smith et al., 2005)
  3. Transition and early lactation cows (-3 until 13 wk. of lactation) fed 0 or 8 mg Cr/d (Cr-met). Milk yield increased 2.5 kg/d but no change in component yields (Kafilzadeh et al., 2012)

What is CalBal

  

Bioactive zeolite that when fed in a well-balanced diet the last 2-3 weeks of gestation will improve calcium status of early lactation dairy cows.

  

Studies have shown that as many as 50% of fresh multiparous cows experience subclinical hypocalcemia.

  

Furthermore, studies have also shown that cows experiencing chronic subclinical hypocalcemia produce less milk, lower fertility rates which lead to greater odds of involuntarily culling.

MOA

  

CalBal exchanges cations with Ca & Mg and binds P. We believe that binding P is the factor that delivers the positive results.

What makes our CalBal different?

  

CalBal has a highly concentrated active ingredient inclusion which translates into lower feeding rates, freeing up the nutritionist to incorporate other essential nutrients.

  

CalBal is consistent in particle size

  

It is also significantly easier to blend without self-separation

What are Hydroxy Minerals?

  

Hydroxy Minerals are a distinct class of trace minerals made up of chloride, oxygen, and hydrogen covalently bound to an element such as Copper, Zinc and Manganese.

What makes them different from other mineral sources?

  

Hydroxy Minerals minerals have consistently been proven to be more bioavailable and biologically effective compared to sulfates and oxides.

  

In addition, Hydroxy Minerals have consistently been proven to be as bio-equivalent or better than Organic Trace Minerals (OTMs), at a fraction of the cost.

  

Hydroxy Minerals are significantly higher in active ingredient content, requiring less space in a diet than OTMs and sulfates.

  

Hydroxy Minerals are less reactive than ionically bound sulfates and carbonates, which helps with the stability of other dietary ingredients.

  

Hydroxy Minerals can completely replace lower quality sources like sulfate and oxides in diet formulations, where OTMs are unable due to dietary space and cost limitations.
