Section VI: Breeding Guarantee
- Should a bull fail to prove a breeder after being used on cows known to be breeders, the matter shall be reported in writing to the consignor within 6 months following the date of purchase. If satisfactory agreement cannot be reached between the buyer and seller, the Association will attempt to mediate a settlement.
- Alberta Cattle Breeders Association is an Agent Only: It is to be clearly understood that the Alberta Cattle Breeders Association is only acting as a medium between the buyer and seller. The Alberta Cattle Breeders Association is not in any way responsible for failure on the part of either party to live up to their obligations, neither does the Alberta Cattle Breeders Association assume any financial obligations to collect or enforce collection of monies between parties, and any legal action taken in exceptional cases, must be between the buyer and seller.
- The consignor is not responsible for damage caused by foreign bodies after the bull is sold or for sickness not apparent at sale time.
- All transportation charges on bulls returned to the consignor are the responsibility of the purchaser. No incidental expenses, such as feed, care, veterinary charges, etc. will be charged by either party when making settlement.
- Under the breeding guarantee, in no event will the consignor be liable to the purchaser for more than the purchase price paid at the Calgary Bull Sale in question.
