Just had a neighbor ask me to background some of his feeders for 3-4 months. Never done anything like this before. I’ll supply all the feed and everything except shots. They will be feed a TMR. Is it worth it? I got 150 already so another 40 doesn’t seem like that much more. But not gonna do it for free either. Just curious how to charge. Rate of gain, yardage or a combination
Re: Custom rates
Are the neighbors calves weaned or bawlers?
Assuming they're weaned 6 weeks at least... Just charge 80cents per pound of gain... Is easy to figure.
He stands all death loss, all vet bills, all meds used. Etc.
