    Hi everyone, I was wondering how much are 3-5 day Holstein bottle calves are going for in other states. Here in mid- Missouri we are paying $300 for really nice bull calves.

    Hard to make much profit when they're that high.

    That's why we aren't buying them right now ;) Even with a nurse cow it's impossible to make a profit.
