No,they just been on their mama's out in pasture with loose mineral,no creep.Was kinda worried if they would go to eating out of the bunks.I fed them brome-johnson grass mix hay in the bunks friday afternoon with a little feed on top,been increasing the feed since,they're eating good now.

Is a "grass trap" a fenced off section of pasture?

Would calves in corral and cows on other side be considered the fence line method?

Nice cattle by the way.

I guess it's more of a lot,about 2 acres with corral in one corner,it's a pretty good tight woven wire fence,you can bring the cows in from 3 different pastures.Yes calves in corral,then cows where they could come up and rub noses(so to speak)would be considered fenceline weaning.I 've always done it that way in the past,but it gets awfully muddy,nasty in there even if not raining.This is better cause there's some grass out there,but bigger area and more chance of them getting spooked,running through fence is what worries me.

My fence line weaning area is divided into a small 150" x 150 lot and then about 1 1/2 acre pasture. They stay in the small lot the first day to day and a half to keep them from walking so much and get them started on grain and used to the water trough. Like you say it can get nasty pretty quick. By the end of day two they are still bawling but quit walking the fence line if their mother is close. I give them about as much creep and sweet feed as they want for the first three days. After 3 or 4 days they are ready to move.
