I feed a pellet with decox and start when the first calf is about a week old.  The best thing I did is build 24 x 36 calf barns with one side closed where the weather comes from,  inside it I use panels with the back wall being one side and a 12 ft creep panel and pass through other one with two 16 ft panels as sides.  The caves figure the pen out almost immediately,  I also keep my best grass hay inside and the pen well  bedded.  I add more 16ft  panels when they get older and put in the creep feeder with a roll of good hay.  I start with a trough that's what they see mom do.
