I was wondering what woulld be fair to charge people(mostly 4-H kids) for keeping their cows/heifers for breeding and calving. I don't mind helping out the kids with their heifers but we are starting to get more kids wanting to use our bulls for breeding and then they want to keep their heifers in our pature until they calf. It is so dry right now that we have to buy lots of hay for the cows in the pasture so the more we have the more it cost to us plus when it's calving time we have to check them every morning and night. I want to help but I does take time and money especially some of these heifers we have for six months. Breeding time we have them about 6-8 weeks and calving up to six months. Any suggestion??? Thank you!
