Six minerals. One nutrition package.

Micronutrients has partnered with Kemin to create the world’s first nutrition package containing six essential trace minerals: IntelliBond® VITAL 5 Cr. For the first time, IntelliBond® C (copper), IntelliBond® Z (zinc), IntelliBond® M (manganese), cobalt, and iodine with KemTRACE® Chromium are combined to support beef cattle well-being and performance.


IntelliBond hydroxy trace minerals are less soluble in the rumen than sulfate sources of trace minerals. Sulfate trace minerals disassociate and release free metals that can bind to antagonists. Learn more about IntelliBond for beef cattle.

IntelliBond has higher bioavailability than sulfates in beef cattle

KemTRACE® Chromium

Chromium plays an important role in glucose metabolism by increasing insulin sensitivity in insulin-sensitive tissues (such as adipose, muscle, liver) and immune cells. High-energy finishing diets cause cattle to become insulin resistant. Supplementing chromium counteracts this response, resulting in more muscle and fat deposition. Learn more about KemTRACE Chromium

KemTRACE Chromium can reduce treatments in receiving cattle

IntelliBond + KemTRACE Chromium

The combination of KemTRACE Cr with IntelliBond Z tended to result in higher carcass weight versus chromium combined with other sources of zinc.

KemTRACE Chromium fed with IntelliBond Z tends to increase carcass weight compared to other zinc sources
