Dairy heifer planning budget for 2019
This budget presents information useful to farmers raising dairy heifers. Table 1 presents estimates for the 2019 year for dairy calves purchased at birth, bred and sold at 24 months in Missouri. Assumptions were based on price forecasts as of October 2018. Detailed inputs and feed requirements are summarized in Tables 2 and 3. The production practices used to develop these cost estimates are common in Missouri. Farmers are encouraged to customize this budget to fit their operation.
