Solid and steady

Holstein springer heifer values started the New Year at considerably healthier levels compared to one year ago. Although the market test was light through the holidays, springer prices in three of the four reported markets were slightly higher compared to last month, with only Pennsylvania softening a bit. Compared to last year, springer prices are higher by at least $100/head, and as much as $375/head, across the board. Despite frigid weather conditions, heifer calf prices also remain strong. The USDA predicts the 2014 U.S. dairy herd to grow by 30,000 head in 2014, and the all-milk price to average $19.70-20.50/cwt., which is highly comparable to the 2013 all-milk price range of $19.90-$20.00/cwt.
