Author Topic: How long do I feed bum lambs milk before weaning to creep only?  (Read 3473 times)

I have 45 bum lambs and was wondering when I can wean them to just creep feed.  They have been on creep and grass hay for over a month and clean them up fast.  I read some people wean at 6-8 weeks, and i was wondering after weaning how much creep to feed?
