Year for Creep?
Cow Country News
Considering that pastures may not be as productive, this year may be well suited for considering creep feeding. Creep feeding will provide calves an opportunity to increase their plane of nutrition and meet their genetic potential for growth. Research studies have demonstrated that calves will continue suckle dams consuming the same amount of milk and may not reduce the nutrient demands on the cow. However, the creep feed consumed replaces forage the calves would otherwise consume leaving more for the cows.
