DAIRY HEIFER CALVING INFLUENCING DAIRY DECISIONS

A dairy market analyst says crossbreeding dairy cattle with beef genetics has significantly reduced heifer inventories and the ability for farmers to grow.


The Daily Dairy Report’s Sarina Sharp tells Brownfield that practice has helped diversify dairy farmer revenue streams and increased the value of dairy cows.


In USDA’s latest cattle inventory report, she says, “They give one number that I really like to watch which is the number of dairy heifers that are expected to calve and enter the milk cow herd within the year.”
