Alfalfa Baleage As A Creep

ELDON COLE

MT. VERNON, MO.
   For years I’ve been impressed with the responses seen when fall-born calves are creep fed alfalfa hay. This winter a trial was run at the Southwest Center using alfalfa baleage as the creep diet. I don’t have the official results yet but just observations tell me some of you might want to give it a try. The intake was about 10 lbs. per day at the end which should be around 5 lbs. of dry matter per calf. As soon as I get the results I’ll share them with you. ∆
