Me and dogs £250/day.

I can bring my own handling system if required, but it's piece work. 50p/treatment/head.

So tagging and drenching is £1/hd.

I get lunch provided. If it's a few days work then I can accomodation and 3 meals a day. Pl

The above is what my company will charge you. It's not what I earn. Rates are not open to negotiation. Don't want to pay that much? No worries, find someone else.

That have there own permanent system. I just brought them in with my dogs and got the job done on my own.
So you’ve had to travel to site, then use your own dogs to gather and work single handed unsupervised injecting and dosing? I’m assuming your self employed? Do you have insurance?

Out of that £12/hr that your business earns, what do you pay yourself?

I won’t ask how much you’d charge to shear them 😬
 
I charge £15hr for me and my dog and handling system, too cheap but if Iv nout on that’s what I’ll come for 💁‍♂🤷🏻‍♂️
That’s probably realistic to be honest. Some of these high prices are a bit like going to an art gallery and seeing paintings with £50,000 price tags ....... that don’t mean sh*t until you know if they ever sell any .......
