Creep feed

Post by LA cattle » Fri Jul 31, 2020 8:30 pm

I made a creep pen for my calves. I have commercial angus/beef master calves. 12% protein. How many pounds of feed should each calf get per day?

1-2% of body weight so if 400# 4-8 lb per head.
My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT
