On the one hand you are "not doing much", on the other you're easily saving the guy 1-1/2 to 2 hours per day and 60 miles worth of gas/diesel (depending what he drives) everyday he's not coming up to check his stock. That's worth something. Assuming a typical 15mpg pickup truck and $3.50 gas, it's $14/day in fuel alone (that he's not spending because you are there looking in on them.) So don't charge any less than that (adjusted for actual local conditions), since he's also saving his time, wear and tear on his truck, and need to get through bad weather.
I'd agree both with the "better to sort it out in advance" (too late for that, obviously) and "try asking him what it's worth to him" comments, but I'd have at least that much in mind as a comeback to a lowball "what's it worth" number, if that happens. If he's a decent guy, the "what's it worth" may be considerably higher, in which case you should not protest too vehemently...
