Battalion®..the Results Are In
In this 28 day study, 180 steers were fed chromium propionate. Subjects showed a linear increase in average daily gain (P < 0.03) and improved feed efficiency (P < 0.05) as chromium propionate concentrations increased. Inclusion of chromium at the 0.3 mg/kg level increased average daily gain by 10.8% and improved feed to gain ratio by 4.2% over controls. (Figures 1 and 2).
