Cattlemen's Day, 1989; Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station contribution; no. 89-567-S; Report of progress (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service); 567; Beef; Limited-creep feeding; Spring calves; Performance


Two field trials were conducted to evaluate limited-creep feeding of spring- born calves using pelleted creep rations with either 0.5, 5, or 10% salt. Average daily gain was increased (P<.05) over controls in trial 2 and when both trials were combined. However, intakes were higher than desired and feed conversion much poorer than expected.
