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.
The gate has a strong triangular brace to prevent cows from changing the shape of the feed access area.

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 set the bar so it is only just higher than the largest calves.
The gate is pinned in the engaged position with two shaft lock pins to prevent cows from lifting it.
Latch for fastening the Creep Gates
The Creep Gates are held in the transport position by a latch in the centre of the side panels.
NUMBER OF STOCK PER CREEP GATE
There are many variables to the number of calves that can be put on a feeder during creep feeding. The main consideration is what other sources of feed they have in their paddock. As a general rule the creep gates are suitable for the following quantities of stock:
- 20 calves each
- Note: only one CG2 can attach to the 1800. Two CG2 can attach to the 3800.
- 10 calves each
- Note: two CG1 can attach to the 800.
