Its just not worth it tbh. Either do it for nothing because you are friends and accept it may die or worse bring back every nasty under the sun or don't do it. I've one lent to a mate as he helps me out with things now - its not coming home, not worth it.A local bloke is wanting to hire my pure Charolais tup for his ewes, don’t have a clue what to charge what’s the going rate to hire a tup? He’s only a shearling n payed £800 for it at beginning of autum. Cheers

I hire tups out to a couple of small flocks that I shepherd, it saves the hassle of them having one or two all year, I charge the £200 each tup.Not really that’s why I only hire them
to people I know, I know there flocks historys… i have plenty of problems anyways 1 more on the list won’t end the world
Generally the types of people who are wanting to hire tups are the type of people who have 10 ewes that are about 10 year old and haven’t been off farm or within a 10 mile radius of another sheep in years and aren’t really a concern, they’re far more likely too catch something from me than I am likely too catch something off them…Scab potential would put me right off, if mine get out any where I’m frit to death what they’ve been next to!!
I wouldn't be hiring out that kind of money tup. I might be wrong (old age) but did you have an abortion problem last lambing? Sorry if I am wrongUsually spend £600/£800 in tups, I only use them on my own brokers to try them out and then hire them so not very profitable really but it keeps it simple not having 4 groups of tups in the summer.
