Selling additional pounds of calf is a desirable objective in any beef cattle enterprise. One way to do this in a cow-calf operation is through creep grazing. Creep grazing puts additional pounds on nursing calves. When weaned, creep grazed calves may weigh 30 to 50 pounds more per calf than those calves that have not had creep grazing available to them.
