3IN1FEEDERS Creep Gates
3IN1FEEDERS Creep Gates allows you to implement creep feeding - the process of supplement feeding calves while excluding cows - quickly and easily. The Creep Gate simplifies creep feeding by pivoting from the transport/inactive position to the engaged position.
This denies cows access to the feeding area based on their body size. The 3IN1FEEDERS Creep Gates are permanently attached to the feeder which makes repositioning the feeder easy. Depending on the breed and size of the calf, the Creep Gates are functional until the calf is about 9 months of age.
Benefits of creep feeding
- Promotes the development of a proper functioning rumen. The faster the gut is developed, the better the eventual growth, health and nutrient digestion of the calf;
- Meeting target weights for market;
- Increased survival rates; and
- Early weaning to allow cows to regain condition quicker.
Adjustable Horizontal Bar
The Creep Gates have a horizontal bar that can be positioned at 9 different heights. This allows you to allow set the bar so it is only just higher than the largest calves.
LATCHES FOR FASTENING THE CREEP GATES DOWN
The gate is pinned in the engaged position with two rotating latches to prevent cows from lifting it.
LATCHES FOR FASTENING THE CREEP GATES UP
The Creep Gates are held in the transport position by a latch at both ends of the panels.
