find a block calving herd, or herds, locally, certain an 'arrangement' could sort you out. You don't say what breed/s you want, or, how many you want at a time. We sell all calves, we don't want, privately to repeat farmers, even the 4 jersey bull calves £30 head.

still best solution is to find a dairy farmer, the potential benefits are huge, we vaccinate against rota virus, a big plus for rearers, and all our calves have had plenty of colostrum, they are fed right through on stored acidified colostrum. Get the right 'deal' calves could be vaccinated, or fed, to your wishes, diseases such as johnes, could be avoided.
To the farmer, no mkt commission, haulage, or wasted time, knowledge they will go, as wanted.
