Springing heifer prices continue to see stability or healthy growth in three of the four reporting markets this month.  Prices softened slightly in Pennsylvania alone. California remained steady while Wisconsin and Texas saw higher prices compared to last month.  Nationwide, springer prices as a whole are up about 30% compared to year-ago levels. 

Holstein heifer calf prices increased nationwide, likely due in part to the seasonal demand for youth project calves.
