Drew, we have paid from $ 25.00/head /month with us furnishing everything to $ 500.00/head for the entire feeding season and they furnished their own supplies.

Wow Michael, what a bargin! My cost per fawn with fresh Nubian goat milk, Target Probiotics, vaccines and feed/hay is nearly $500/fawn. I charged $950 this year. That means I made less than $0.15/hour for my time over the course of the summer.

Robbie, the one family is Amish. They do it to make some extra money. Their two children are great with the babys and they come back home to me DOG TAME. It is a great deal for us and they love doing it. I just wish they had a phone...lol
