Small flock shearing involves a lot of work for fewer animals, as compared to a large flock commercial shearer. With each small flock, I approach the job with professionalism taking into consideration the needs of the animals, as well as those of the flock owners. All of this is factored into my pricing.
$50 Set-up fee
This is the minimum charge. If I arrive and shearing cannot happen due to conditions like the sheep not being properly penned or wet, the set-up fee will still be charged. (Please see shearing day recommendations.)
$8–16 per head
This depends on breed, gender, age, condition, and growth of wool (over a year's growth is more).
Mileage fees are set on an individual basis based on location. Once a mileage fee is determined, I will continue to honor it for future shearing jobs with you.
