Missouri Dairy Heifer Budget

The Dairy Heifer Budgets is our example of the cost of producing dairy heifers for a 500 head contract dairy heifer grower who buys the heifers at 200 pounds and takes them to 24 months of age. The delivered cost of the feeds used in the cost calculations are used and reflect the latest forage, grain and co-product prices as of October 23, 2008.A downloadable Excel spreadsheet is available in the link below.
