Client purchased 8 breeding heifers at $8,000. I am unclear if I'm allowed to state total purchase price and which depreciation method I use?

If they're still heifers, they haven't been placed in service and you don't start depreciation until they are.

If you're going to do farm returns, download and study IRS Pub 225, including the depreciation information on Page 42.
