Dear Mr. Srivastava,
Thanks for going through Metal Propionate Technology. Metal propionates are aimed to maximize the bioavailability of mineral in the dairy animal body through superior bio-absorption. Due to better availability of minerals, dairy animals show better milk production, reproduction and immunity. Kemin has done significant research on this concept and published various papers. We would be happy to send you literature and related papers. Kindly send your corresponding address.

Dear Sir,
An informative metal propionate technology for optimum bioavailability of minerals during early lactation period i.e 90 days. Sir my query is ,in calving stage and thereafter animal go through the stress factor as involution of uterus(21days) ,and production and reproductn in 90days for better functioning necessary.when animals is in stress condition i.e high cortisol level affectg Rumen acid,immunity(thymus gland shrinkage) and infertility (imbalance in progesterone and estrogen level affectg ovulatn blockage),How mineral bioavalabilty can help in such cases for better optimum productn and reproductn.

Dear Mr. Sanjay,

Its indeed a very interesting question. The science of trace minerals is quite complex however I will try to share some important points related to your query. As you know that mineral bioabsorption and availability varies from one source to another and therefore, Metal Propionates are aimed to have superior bioabsorption. You will be happy to know that to overcome stress issue and also to reduce cortisol level in dairy animals, Chromium Propionate has been invented which is one and only safe source of supplemental Chromium. It is approved by USFDA. Kemin manufacture and market Chromium Propionate in the name of KemTRACE Chromium. Secondly, maximum bioavailable source of Mangnese i.e. Mangnese propionate (KemTRACE Mn) helps in the synthesis of Cholesterol which is a precursor of estrogen and progesteron. Thus, it ensures better reproduction in dairy animals. I hope, I have tried partly to cover answers of your query. However, I will be glad to share more on KemTRACE Minerals and its importance in better production, reproduction and immunity. Please send your corrosponding address, we will send you some interesting research papers and articles.
Thank you,

Dear Sir,
Sir since metal propionate i.e chromium propionate has antioxidant property(free radical scavaging) else is it a immunomodulator ,pls upgrade for my information.
