  Creep feeding is an important  strategy for better pastures, healthier cows and an increased rate of gain on your calves. It maximizes muscle and bone growth in young calves while preventing early fat deposition. Growers should consider creep feed for their calves to:
•     Reduce stress on grass
•     Reduce stress on cows
•    Add weight without adding fat
