r.h. in okla.·
I know Jersey are bred more for their milk and fat content, but are they suitable for beef processing. Reason why I ask is the last 2 or 3 times I have gone to the pig sale someone has run some calves through as well. 2 times Jersy sucker calves have come through and only sold for about $50 each. Holstein sucker calves have come though also but they went around $150 dollars each and I know several people around who raise holstiens for beef processing. If Jerseys are just as good for beef processing I might try to buy the next one that comes through for myself.
