Springer Values Continue to Struggle

K-State Dairy Heifers 2016 ( Wyatt Bechtel )

The healthy rebound in U.S. milk prices has not yet reached the replacement market. All four reported markets nationwide saw declines in #1 Holstein springer values over the past month, from less than $100/head lower in California, to up to $600/head down in Pennsylvania. Holstein heifer calf values saw little test, and remain well below $100/head nationwide.
