Texas prices weaken

Holstein springer prices remain steady compared to last month in California and Wisconsin, but lost some ground in Texas and Pennsylvania. High-priced, short-supply feedstuffs may be the cause of a softer market in Texas compared to the rest of the country. A large heifer sale promoted for mid-July in California suggests that many herds have excess heifer inventories. Holstein heifer calf prices also lost a little footing in Texas, but remain steady elsewhere. FULL STORY »

Hanging in there

Projections for healthier milk prices to continue through the summer and fall may be buoying dairy springer prices, which held steady throughout most of the country and even took a healthy upward bump in California compared to last month. Springer prices also are on par with year-ago values. Dicey crop planting conditions in the upper Midwest could impact feed prices and erase earlier projections of commodity price relief by fall. Holstein heifer calf prices are down again in the upper Midwest and Northeast, steady in Texas. FULL STORY »

Strong and steady

Demand for springer heifers remains strong nationwide, with prices increasing or remaining steady in all four monitored locations. The brightest spot is Texas, where springer prices received as much as a 30 percent bump compared to last month, and are considerably higher than they were there a year ago. For example, approved/medium springers in Texas were $600-$1,075 last April, compared to $1,000-$1,175 this year. Equity Livestock at Stratford, Wis., also reported a huge crowd at its April 2 auction, with strong demand for springers. Heifer calf prices were steady with month-ago levels. FULL STORY »
