Calculated Rate: Marion County has free pick-up/drop-off; $30 (15 miles x $2 per loaded mile) is less than the minimum charge, so total charge would be the $50 minimum.
Example 2: Three sheep need to be picked up in Franklin County and transported 30 miles to a county fair.
Calculated Rate: Franklin County has a $25 pick-up/drop-off fee, plus $60 (30 miles x $2 per loaded mile) so a total charge of $85.
