Economic Costs and Labor Efficiencies Associated with Raising Dairy Herd Replacements on Wisconsin Dairy Farms and Custom Heifer Raising Operations
The cost of raising dairy calves and replacement heifers is very significant on Wisconsin dairyfarms. Calculating the costs associated with raising dairy calves and heifers is an essential partof dairy business management. To augment individual dairy calf and heifer cost of production analysis, the dairy industry also requires a set of benchmark cost of production data in which individual business costs and labor and management efficiencies can be compared. The objective of this project was to evaluate the economic costs and labor efficiencies associated with raising dairy herd replacements on Wisconsin dairy farms and custom calf and heifer raising operations.
