    I was planning on raising calves on bottle for others and didnt know how it worked out if calves died. I know I wouldn't be paid for them but what if they already paid half up front any ideas

    A possibility is to prorate to deposit to the length of life of the calf.

    There should be a clause in the contract negating you of any responsibility provided it wasn't from negligence.

    Did you sign your contract yet?

    Sometimes if we have a bottle calf that we don't sell, and a neighbor has a cow that lost a calf, we will send the calf to them to raise on their cow. When the calf is sold the money from it is split 50/50. We paid to produce it while the other paid to raise it which for the most part equals out. If it dies, we're both out. That's how it works around here.
