Not Many Bright Spots in Dairy Replacement Market
The price picture remains bleak for springing dairy heifers and baby heifer calves throughout most of the country.
Prices remained mostly unchanged to down this month, with springers as low as $500 per head and calves bottoming out at $15-20 per head.
In most markets, Holstein bull calves actually are bringing slightly more than heifers.
The lone uptick was in Pennsylvania, where springers jumped about $100 per head for the second consecutive month.
