Holstein cattle/calves - $110 (Jamestown)

12345678910
We are looking to start selling our cattle in groups or individually. We have sold our cattle in the past at around 600lbs and have started also selling them lighter. We are currently building up the number of cattle we have and are gauging interest in groups and sizes to sell them. We are getting our calves from a handful of dairies 3-10 days old. Prices currently would start at $110 per head at that age and will go up from there depending on age. From there prices would be:
Below 200lbs/8-10 weeks old- $250 and down
200lbs- $1.50/lb
225lbs- $1.45/lb
250lbs- $1.40/lb
275lbs- $1.35/lb
300lbs- $1.30/lb
325lbs- $1.25/lb
350lbs- $1.20/lb
375lbs- $1.15/lb
400lbs- $1.10/lb
450lbs- $1.05/lb
500-600lbs- $1.00/lb

All weaned calves will be banded/castrated and dehorned. Prior to 4 weeks old, calves will still be in tact (bulls) and will not be dehorned unless requested by buyer but will not be dehorned prior to 3 weeks old regardless. Calves will receive vaccinations at two and four months old and will also be wormed (unless a buyer requests them not be given anything ahead of time). We can provide you with information on vaccinations or any medicines given to the cattle while we have them if desired. All cattle will be built up to a high protein full feed by 10 weeks old and will also be on alfalfa hay (if not grazing on grass) unless a buyer request differently ahead of time. Grass is limited so most will be on alfalfa or can be on grass hay if preferred, but will be given alfalfa hay unless a buyer requests otherwise. We are hoping to be able to have groups of 10-20+ head within 2-3 weeks of age ready at all times at all sizes depending on the demand. If needed, we have the potential of getting calves from additional dairies. All are smaller, family owned dairies, no mega dairies ever. If you have any questions, would like additional information or are interested in any calves, feel free to call, text or email me. show contact info . We currently have 38 head at around 250 lbs and under. That number will continue to grow as we get more bottle calves. 11 are currently still on the bottle but also eating pellets but are at or under 4 weeks old. The rest have been weaned and are 8-12 weeks old and on full feed or being built up to full feed.
