I live in New York State. What would be a reasonable price to pay for a hefier that is a mix of 50% Red Holstein, 25% Angus, and 25% Charolais. She is 4 days old, wieghts 80 lbs. and, is extremely lively. She wants to eat everything. She has been coliostem feed. She has all 4 udders. She has a white face with a mostly red body with some white on it. If I get her I will get her from the farm where she was born.

What should I expect this calf to be like when she is older? How big do you think she will get? I am looking for a hefier calf that will be a good mother and produce strong calves (beef or dairy) that will bring a good price at auction regardless of what age I sell them at, Any suggestions???

Does anybody have any pointers on how to pick out good calves?
