Inexpensive Creep Feeder
"I wanted to save some money and use equipment I already had. That's why I turned a covered gravity grain wagon and a few gates into a creep feeder," says Joe Mattingly, Raywick, Ky.
  By attaching two gates and a sorting panel to the wagon and blocking off the grain chute with a 4 by 4, calves have access to feed while the mothers don't.  
  Mattingly says this setup does the work of a $2,500 creep feeder.
  "It's an economical way to add pounds of beef," he says.
