Which means waiting five or six years before you know what you- 've got. Creep Feeding Pope also discussed the pros and cons of creep feeding at some length. He noted that ex- lo show that little benefit could be gained from creep feeding. If cows are giving a reason- able amount of milk, if high qual- ity pastures are available, these salisfy lhe needs of cumstances will do nothing for the calf but put on fat. "If you jan get a premium for fat slaughter calves, the practice may be Pope said. "But if you're selling feeders, the increased gain won't pay for the feed." On the other hand, Pope admit- ;ted that under less than perfect 'conditions creep feeding might be profitable. "The average beef cow is a pretty inefficient producer of he pointed out. adding that even a good milker in the beef breeds tends to fall off sharply in production after about four months of lactation. It might well be more efficient then, he said, to creep feed the calves rather than to try to hold up milk production by pouring feed to the cow herd.
