Brown Swiss For Sale.. VALUE??

We are down sizing our herd and have a WONDERFUL Brown Swiss 2 weeks into her first lacatation we are considering selling. She has a bull calf that I think we will keep, but he may go with her if wanted as well
My question is does anyone know the value of a 3 year old- first lacation Brown Swiss? We are in CT if location matters

Most of the Brown Swiss cows her go for 750 to 1300 if average size and quality a very good animalsccan easily bring over 2000. They need to be big, dairy with a quality udder, and usually close to calving. The calf should bring around 200 to 300 this time of year. Again price is relative to quality. This is for the mid west I am not sure about the eastern states, maybe check dairy sales for your region.

I saw registered Brown Swiss once at an auction here, and their prices were comparable to Holsteins.
