Abstract or Summary
  • Studies were conducted over a 10-year period to determine the feasibility of supplementing lactating cows being wintered on native meadow hay. The interaction between cow feed levels and creep feeding of calves was also investigated. Results show that a full feed of meadow hay to the cows and no creep to the calves may be the most profitable. When cattle prices are high in relation to feed costs, supplementing the cows with protein and energy along with creep feed for the calves may be profitable. Under favorable price conditions winter creeping of calves without supplementing cows also may return a profit. Supplementing the cows without creeping the calves did not pay under any conditions in these trials.
