A bit early to know, but I have seen some younger spring calvers going for U$S 1150 to 1200 recently.
I would guess they will go $200 higher than that in Nov/Dec, which is our major bred sale period.

Rule of Thumb:
Commercial bred cows are worth 1.5 times the price of 550 lb calves.
ie IF 550 lb calf is worth 1.50 ($825) then a bred cow is worth $825 x 1.5 = $1240
550 lb calf at 1.30 = 715 x 1.5 = $1075

Using 1.75 for very good young bred cows 1.75 x $825 = $1535
$715 x 1.75 = $1250

I culled some breds about 2 weeks ago I think. $1150-1350. I was very pleased with the $1350.

This time of the year nearly all bred cows end up going to slaughter. Nobody wants to buy them and feed for the winter. So the majority of commercial bred cows cost one bid over kill price.
