Effects of Breed Type Creep Feeding and Growth Implants on Heifer Pre- and Postweaning Growth and Reproductive Performance

Based on these results, a cow-calf producer wishing to retain suitable heifers as herd replacements and sell the remaining heifers at weaning can reasonably consider implanting all heifer calves. High-protein creep, limit-fed to suckling heifer calves had no effect on pre-weaning, post-weaning, or reproductive performance in this study.
