Grazing prices

What's the current rate you're paying/receiving for first time calving heifers?

Lower north island for May to May grazing is $9-$12.50 the 12.50 guys say it a bit expensive but are on weight gain and done well (ie getting a 500 kg heifer back and very low MT rates even a couple with a zero MT rate) after May they go on to winter grazing rates with a range of $24-$30. I have had more worried about the increasing transport cost that has to be added on top so more expensive grazing is cheaper than cheaper grazing at some distance away.

Thanks very much Jim.
