    Going rate for Relief milking?

    What's the going rate for relief milking? I milk at various different set ups ranging from 8 a side swing over to 12 a side double up....cow numbers vary from 70-250, but everywhere I go I get the cows in, set up parlour milk and wash down....wondering what I should be charging to match others?
