    I have a guy here wanting several of his cows soft tanned and possibly some long horn cow hides soft tanned. What is a good price to charge?
     
  2. Depending on the size of the hide and how soft they want them i would not charge less than $50 per sq ft. I charge $750 minimum when i tan a cow hide because there is a lot of work that goes into soft tanning a cow hide. The key is flesh it thin.

    Somewhere between 2.5 and 3 times what the tanner will charge you per square foot.
