Pricing "Replacement Quality" Open Heifers...
Typically, open "Replacement Quality" heifers are worth the current market value of their steer counterparts...
If 500 lb. steers are currently bringing $160.00 per cwt. or $800.00 per head, that is the likely market value of your 500 lb. heifers.
If 750 lb. steers are currently bringing $140.00 per cwt. or $1,050.00 per head, that is the likely market value of your 750 lb. heifers.
This pricing guideline is for above average quality heifers suitable for entering a breeding herd. Registered heifers, heifers of certain breeds, and those with extraordinary quality might bring more.
