Might be able to find you some in Tenino, a little closer to home. Are you looking for bottle babies or weened calves? I can give a few folks a call tomorrow. Got a few friends with large local dairy herds

I would prefer weaned calves, I know my wife would love to bottle feed some calves, but I think weaned would be best. Thanks PolarBear!
Ain't nothing better than the adrenaline you get when seeing an animal in the wild.

The mark on that calf head is marking paste. It comes in several colors for making the cows after you do things to them.
That mark is probably put there after they gave it a novicain shot to burn off it's horns. When the vet does a hurd check he does mark the cows with different markings for the different things he has to do to them.

Jersey day old bull calves are plentiful and very cheap.....maybe even free.

If interested in an attempt to taking more than you planned, send me a pm.

Is there a reason you want jersey over others? Family milk cow or for beef? If you’re raising for meat you’re better off with a beef breed like angus, Hereford, simental, etc. Toppenish livestock commission has a sale every Thursday and Saturday, there’s almost always good deals to be had and I bought 5# 200-250 wt weaned heifer calves for $225/head all black with one Hereford a month or so ago.
