    For a cow, nothing raw and unfleshed; fleshed and salted still worth less than the charges to do a good job; same goes for the skull. A really big, prefectly tanned and flawless and well haired up FULL hide is worth abot 15.00 a square foot; tanners charge 9 to 12 sg ft to tan one and then you have to flesh and send them off and pay shipping back. Unless someone wants it, it is worth nothing as it is.

    Jims right they are pretty worthless. Tanned you would make a few bucks but thats a lot of fleshing.
