Pennsylvania the bright spot for replacement values

The Northeast has received ample summer rainfall and thus has better current crop conditions compared to the rest of the country. That may be the reason that, in the four-market summary of dairy replacement, prices are up this month only in Pennsylvania. Top-quality springer heifer prices there made a healthy increase this month, up from $1,375-1,600 last month, to $1,525-1,675 this month.  Medium-quality springers in Pennsylvania also were up $150-200 a head in the past month. Springers in the other three monitored markets were steady to slightly down compared to last month. Heifer calf prices were down in Wisconsin but steady in the other two reporting markets.
