15% CALF CREEP
15% Calf Creep is an all-purpose economical pelleted starter feed that provides weaned calves with the supplemental protein, energy, vitamins, and minerals they need for a good start. 15% Calf Creep is most ideal for calves weighing 400-600 lbs being LIMIT-FED or hand-fed daily in bunks or being fed a TMR (total mixed ration).
For the prevention of coccidiosis and respiratory disease, medications approved for small calves can be added to this formula on a 1-ton custom-basis.
NOTE: We recommend the 15% Premium Calf Creep w/BioMOS & Availa or 15% Beef Builder Starter w/BioMOS & Bio-Plex for free-choice creep feeding scenarios. Also, stressed calves, early-weaned calves, or calves smaller than 400 lbs should be offered the 15% Premium Calf Creep w/BioMOS & Availa (see product page for details).
Slowly introduce at the rate of 1-3 lbs/head/day over the course of 4-7 days. Thereafter, limit feed in creep feeders, bunk feeders or in a TMR to calves weighing 400-600 lbs at the rate of 1 lb/100 lbs of bodyweight (see chart below). Do not allow cattle to over consume this product or exceed 6 lbs/head/day. Feed in addition to good-quality free-choice pasture or hay (at no less than 50% of the calf’s diet). Provide fresh, clean water and plain, white salt at all times. Follow directions as to prevent digestive upset.
|Body Weight||Amount of feed|
