Optimism in the air

Relief from high feed prices, plus a prediction for a large 2013 corn crop that could lower prices even more, may be fueling market optimism despite relatively flat milk prices. Springer heifer prices are steady to higher nationwide this month.  The hot spot: Pennsylvania, where close-up springer values have jumped about $200 a head compared to last month.  Heifer calf prices also are up slightly in all reporting areas.
