PRICING OPTIONS

Pricing Explained

We charge modern shearing rates for small flock shearing services.  A small flock is anywhere from 1-100 sheep.  Commercial shearing for hundreds or thousands of head is done on a trailer and sheep are fed to the shearer so that he or she can shear 100+ head a day, making a good wage at $3-6 per head.  Small flock shearing requires much more work for far fewer animals. In order to make a good wage, we charge accordingly.


Our work begins with the first email contact and includes drive time, gas, set-up, maintenance and repair of vehicles and equipment and so on.


To give you an idea what to expect, we include below our standard pricing.  These assume that we have multiple jobs in your area, or that you are local to us  and that the condition of the sheep and shearing site are good to excellent. If you are far from us and we do not have enough work in your area, we’ll charge either
drive time plus standard shearing rates or  a day rate.


Each job is a little different and  each of our shearers reserve the right to charge what they feel they need to give you the best service possible. In other words, we reserve the right to vary from these prices for extra drive time, sheep or site in fair to poor condition or any other reason we see fit.


Estimated price of service is quoted via email based on the information given, this can change based on the actual on-site conditions of farms and sheep if found to vary widely from the information that was provided. This is a skilled, specialty service, that requires training, experience and specialty tools and is back breaking labor. A good shearer is worth the cost.
