do you suppose it would make a difference if I got it straight from the dairy?
Critter you can check your local AG paper for up to date market prices ( https://www.farmanddairy.com/markets/ohio ). Not sure why you want an intact bull calf they are unpredictable. Most homestead farmers in my area raise Herefords for meat Ive been told they are calmer than Angus.Ive been raising belted Galloways for meat they are smaller and better on grass however take 3 years start to finish wheres angus and herefords almost half that time. I have my last belted steer at an Amish farm as my small Jersey herd and two horses has taken over the pasture.CR I hope you don't mind me tagging along in your thread. I'm thinking the same... I would like to get 2 or 3 calf's but for meat. I know next to nothing about raising cows. I recently befriended a Amish man and he knows how to raise them. I would like to get two this spring and raise for slaughter. I believe I could get Black Angus calf's pretty easy around here since there are a lot of farms with them around. What is a fair price for a uncastrated Black Angus calf?
