FEBRUARY CREEP FEEDING GRAIN FEEDER & PANEL SALE !!!
Creep feeding is a great management strategy to ensure your breeders don’t loose too much condition during peak lactation period. This allows only calves to access higher quality feed to take the pressure off the cow, so she has a greater ability to stay in an acceptable condition and maintain herd fertility.
Creep feeding can also improve allocation of feed, saving costs and can improve results with your weaner weights and survival rates, also improving rumen development and assisting the weaning process. Creep feeding operations can be achieved very simply by the addition of creep feeder panels to your grain bin to restrict access to cows.
Some things to keep in mind are:
- Supplementation should be palatable and high in protein.
- A 5 in 1 or a 7 in 1 should be administered to reduce risk of clostridial disease.
- In extreme conditions supplementation of vitamins and minerals will also be required to ensure livestock remain healthy and ensure maximum growth and feed efficiency’s can be reached.
