CHS Nutrition Calf Creep Profit Potential Calculator
CHS Nutrition provides lots of information to help you better manage your livestock operation. Producer’s continuously ask us why they should buy our creep feed when the competition is priced lower per ton. When you put quality Payback creep feed against a starch or screenings based creep feed, a few dollars per ton is quickly negated by a better feed conversion.
