    Default Bull Calf Prices

    I was floored! Holstein bull calves are from $125 - $175 here! In Florida the dairies sold day old calves for $80 and less and I was expecting similar prices here. How much are ya'll paying or getting for your bull calves at what age?

    Holstien Bull calves (assuming not twins) are bringing $200 in northern WI.
    Our colored bull calves are being sold at 3-10 days of age for $75-$100 depending on weight and frame size.

    About $150 on holstein bulls, $135 for crosses (JerseyX), and Jersey bull calves are $20 -- if you can even find someone to take them.
    ~your decisions are only as good as the information you base them on~

    Wow . As far as I know, around here they are unfortunately sold dirt cheap. Under $50 for sure.

    Where are you from? That's crazy cheap. Does that include Holsteins?

    I just bought a Holstein bull calf on Saturday for $75.00. My friends that run the Jersey dairy are breeding sexed semen now, so they rarely have bulls. When they do they go for $35.00.

    I'm going to speak to the Jersey dairy I bought Karma from to see if they have bull calves for sale. I paid way too much at auction. Need to find a more direct route. That was about the price for Holstein calves when I was in FL too tusclan. $50 - $80.

    The only Jersey dairy in the area sells pure Jersey bull calves for $75 at 4 days old and they all go to one person. None are available.

    Anyone know of a dairy in western KS, the OK or TX panhandles or SW CO that has Jersey bull calves? I keep hearing about them but can never get directly in touch with one for some odd reason...

    Latest report from the sales barn here in Central WI shows 50-165 for Holstein bull calves.
    Can get Jersey bulls for 20 bucks from most any farmer around.

    I finally found a family dairy that I can get Jersey calves from and I pay $70 ea. The local dairy quoted me $100 for day old Holstein calves a few months ago.

    My neighbor sent two Jersey bull calves to the Carlisle auction and got a bill instead of a check. I haul them out of the farm for free and feed them up for veal and bratwursts.
