Is the market flooded with dairy heifers? I don't think so, I think its just the opposite now, people who raise heifers, aren't selling them for these crazy low prices, and why should they? I know several people who raise and sell hiefers, and they are either keeping them and milking them or hanging onto them hoping the prices rebound. It takes x$ to raise any animal, and I don't know of many who will take that big of a loss right now.
