  1. Hi Bonnie, Just making sure I am reading this right and we would be at $60 per day?

    $40 multispecies care
    $10 per day milking
    $10 travel additional

    Or does it take you longer than that to get here? Just budgeting for the future. I may be needing you for a week in September 13-18th for mornings only. Gary will be here for the evenings.
