Dairy Cattle Prices

Postby Son of Butch » Sun Apr 13, 2014 11:23 pm

Representative sales 3/21/14 of commercial grade Holstein Dairy Cows at local sales barn in Minnesota.
Dairy form, udders, feet & legs are more important than weight, but weights listed anyway.
Animals listed are from 10 different farms.

Good Quality Young Milk Cows
1155# $3250 high selling cow
1360# 3100
1320# 3000
1450# 2900
1300# 2850
1210# 2750
1280# 2700
1100# 2650
1160# 2600
1300# 2600

Springing Heifers
1355# 2300 high
1460# 2200
1390# 2100
1330# 2050
1235# 1950
1300# 1900
1315# 1800
1300# 1725
1150# 1700
1310# 1675

Looks like buying 7-8 weight open heifers at 1.25 and turning them in 9-10 months has some nice profit potential.
Neighbor got 27.65 cwt for Feb. milk, his biggest milk check ever and was looking forward to March check bcs he had 2 more pickups in March vs Feb.
