β-Carotene is best known as the orange-red pigment found in carrots. But the truth is, it’s much more than just a pretty color! With over 50 years of experience, we’ve learned to use it to improve animal performance.
β-Carotene is an essential nutrient for all farmed stock. As it is only found in plants and cannot be synthesized by livestock, animals’ requirements of this nutrient must be fulfilled by their diet.
The natural β-carotene content of forages in animal diets varies, and supplementation is the proven way to make sure that diets consistently supply sufficient β-carotene.
