How Much Does a Baby Cow Cost?

Whether your cow is a dairy cow or will be raised for meat will affect the price as well as things like the breed, weight, and family pedigree.

Let’s examine what you can expect to pay to buy and raise a baby cow correctly.

Find the Right Baby Cow

For the most part, the biggest determining factor in baby cow price will be weight. It’s an indication of how much time and investment went into raising the cow to this point, and how well it will be expected to produce meat or milk.

You can expect to pay around $400-$700 for a yearling cow. Again, the weight, whether they are a dairy or a beef cow, and other factors will play a part in pricing.

Raising a cow can be a ton of fun as a project for a family, or as a new revenue stream for your small but growing farm.
