Creep Feeding Tips
Creep feeding your calves prior to weaning may add pounds to your calves, help them transition during weaning and relieve lactation stress for your cows. Planning ahead and following a few easy tips can help make your creep feeding program a success.
Creep Feeding Program Tips:
- Plan what type of creep feeding program you will use and the equipment needed for it
- Start your creep feeding program when your calves are approximately at 2-3 months of age
- Locate the feeder where cows gather one or more times a day– near feeding grounds, shade, water, and salt. Scatter hay near the creep and inside the pen to coax calves to enter
- Continue your creep feeding program until weaning
