CONDITIONS OF SALE
Should any bull, after reaching the age of 14 months, fail to prove a breeder after being used for a reasonable period of time on cows known to be breeding, the matter shall be reported in writing to the consignor who shall then have the privilege of a reasonable period of time in which to prove the bull a breeder before refunding the purchase price or making other settlement satisfactory to the buyer. In order to qualify as a breeder, a bull must be able to perform natural service.

Transportation of any animal(s) being returned to the consignor shall be paid by the shipper.
