Numbers 18:15-17 New International Version

15  The first offspring of every womb, both human and animal, that is offered to the Lord is yours. But you must redeem every firstborn son and every firstborn male of unclean animals. 16  When they are a month old, you must redeem them at the redemption price set at five shekels[1] of silver, according to the sanctuary shekel, which weighs twenty gerahs. 17  "But you must not redeem the firstborn of a cow, a sheep or a goat; they are holy. Splash their blood against the altar and burn their fat as a food offering, an aroma pleasing to the Lord.


[1] 18:16 That is, about 2 ounces or about 58 grams
