Elk Grove Milling’s Stable Mix™ products are recommended by veterinarians and farriers, and are some of the most popular equine feeds at Rainbow Ag. Elk Grove Milling strives for one goal… the Health, Wellness and Happiness of your animals. EGM is on the cutting edge of the feed industry, developing innovations in the pelleting world, and now they have added KemTrace Chromium to their complete feed, just another example of superior feeds through science.
Read this article to learn why Chromium is important for horses, particularly those with Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS). Chromium – an essential trace mineral – attaches to insulin receptors thereby increasing insulin sensitivity. The result is improved blood glucose clearance and lower blood insulin levels. Reduced insulin levels could help in reducing the incidence and severity of laminitis. KemTRACE Chromium is a highly bioavailable, organic source of chromium that is proven to improve insulin sensitivity, leading to improved glucose utilization. It is the only FDA-reviewed source of chromium on the market for horses today and is backed by millions of dollars and decades of research at Kemin. In the article there is also a video of how Chromium works to support health at the cellular level.
Rainbow carries Stable Mix in both 50# bags, and the 250# barrels.
