LWT can assist with your individual horse’s needs by conducting feed assements and evaluations. The cost is $94 per horse plus GST and travel (if required). If you have a group you can pull together, Dr Waldron is able to assess them on a daily basis (approx 10 per day) and split any travel costs accordingly. Contact Dr Waldron directly if you need further assistance with this.
Standard consultancy rates
Our consultancy rates are $242 per hour plus GST for ad hoc and short term work or $185 per hour plus GST for retainer work and longer term projects (>3 months). Time taken during travelling (excluding long haul flights) is priced at 33% of our standard hourly rate. These prices cover all writing and scientific consultancy work that is primarily office based. Many of our clients are overseas, and, as such we try to combine meetings and work during these trips to keep travel expenses to a minimum.
These can be tailored to meet individual requirements and are quoted for accordingly. All our independent seminars are advertised on the website and elsewhere, and include details of costs and registration. A discounted rate is available for groups exceeding 20 people. We can cater for all levels of delegates – from pony and riding clubs to training for feed industry professionals and related occupations (e.g. veterinary). Alternatively, if you wish to book us to run your own required training or CPD course, then the cost is NZ $2160 plus GST and travel. This includes preparation time for the level of information required.
Trials for the Equine Site are quoted for, with a basic cost of approximately $57 + GST per horse per day (excluding feed, lab, technical and sampling requirements). We can run any aspects of research, from simple hiring of facilities to full planning, organising and reporting, according to clients needs. Depending on the research being conducted, we can accommodate horses comfortably in large individual stalls/pens. We can also provide grazing-based research if required. Our close relationship with specialist equine veterinarians means we can accommodate other work as required – subject to ethical approvals. Colleagues at Massey University are used for specialist needs during trials. Overseas work is welcome. Analysis of samples is conducted at Massey University’s accredited laboratory services. A list of analytical costs is available upon request.
Grant funding assistance
