We conducted 2 experiments to evaluate the effects of chromium picolinate (CrP) on growth performance, carcass characteristics and plasma components in Holstein bulls. In trial I, eight finishing Holstein bulls (300+or-6.99 kg) were allocated to 2 treatments (control and 0.05% CrP) with 4 replication for 10 months. The results showed that the growth performance was not affected by CrP addition.
