Product Description

Calf Creep Feeder Advantages 

Our calf creep feeder is a means of providing supplemental nutrients to nursing calves, usually in the form of grain, protein supplements, commercial calf creeps, or high-quality forages. Calves which have been creep fed usually suffer less setback at weaning and tend to adapt to feedlot rations quicker than calves that have not been creep fed. Milk is an important source of nutrients for the nursing calf. Herds with low milk production or high numbers of first-calf heifers or aged cows may benefit the most from creep feeding. Weaning weights are increased. Producers can expect 30 to 60 pounds of added gain with creep feeding. It usually takes 8 to 12 pounds of grain to produce one pound of added gain. However, feed conversions (pounds of creep per pound of added gain) can range from 5:1 to 30:1 with grain-based creep feeds.

Creep feeding calves is typically done to get calves used to feedlot rations. While calves prefer milk first and foremost since it is a vital supplier of nutrients when they’re nursing, keep in mind that creep and forage are also important parts of their diets. In general, creep feeding needs to be provided for at least the last two months before weaning.
