Bull & Female Sale

Welcome to our 5th Annual Bull and Female Sale! The Southwest Iowa Gelbvieh & Balancer group would like to thank you for your interest in our bulls and heifers this year, and welcome you to our 5th Annual Production Sale! The bulls have been at the Werner Feed Efficiency Test Station south of Diagonal since October 1. We would like to thank Werners for all the time they have spent caring for the bulls. We would also like to thank Craig Hays for doing the ultrasounding again this year. All the bulls have been DNA profiled and their Igenity scores are also available. The bulls have been on a high roughage ration for growth and soundness and not added fat. We are pleased to welcome bull consignments from Bruce Taylor this year as well. The heifers in the offering are some top heifers and will be guaranteed open. They should make some top replacements for their new owners. Thanks again and we hope to see you in Creston on March 21! — The Southwest Iowa Gelbvieh & Balancer Group Please bring your catalog to the sale with you on March 21!

Bulls: Lots 1-26 This sale has some of the highest quality bulls and heifers you will find. Come and see for yourself! After studying the offering in this sale, you will find that these deep bodied, thick bulls with a lot of length come from carefully selected sires mated to cow herds that have taken years to develop. Compare the quality, EPDs, ultrasound information, Igenity scores and feed efficiency testing on these bulls with any bulls in the breed. The carefully selected sires of the bulls offered in this sale involved an intensive search covering many miles…from central Illinois to Denver and from Oklahoma into Canada. Hundreds of bulls were seen and inspected before eventually purchasing these special herd sires, and we continue to work every year to improve the genetics in our herds. Animals from this sale have been purchased by breeders throughout the central United States. We hope you will come and take advantage of this year’s sale offering!

Any guarantees with respect to ability to freeze semen shall be made by separate agreement between the buyer and seller.

ADJUSTMENTS: The following adjustments do not preclude the right of buyer and seller to mutually agree upon other terms and conditions for settlement of any dispute. All claims for adjustment or refund must be made in writing either within six (6) months from the time of sale or not later than six (6) months after the animal reaches eighteen (18) months of age, whichever occurs first, with the exception of claims involving misrepresentation of service sire or as otherwise provided herein. If a female is sold as “safe in calf” to a given sire or sires on a specified date or dates and proves not to be represented, the buyer is entitled to a refund of the purchase price from the seller upon return of the animal to the farm of the seller at the seller’s expense. In the event an animal is claimed to be a nonbreeder, the animal may be returned to the farm of the seller, at the buyer’s expense, if in good physical condition and the return is in compliance with the health requirements of the state where purchased. The seller shall be entitled a six (6) month trial period in which to prove the animal is a breeder, the seller shall, at his option, replace the animal with another of equal value or refund the purchase price. Either option shall be deemed full satisfaction and settlement. Any animal returned will be at the purchaser’s risk. No guarantee is given concerning a pregnant female’s gestation period or calf’s condition. The seller is not responsible for damage caused by foreign bodies after the animal has been sold nor for sickness not apparent at sale time. If a female is sold as

“open” and proves to be with calf at time of sale and examined pregnant within sixty (60) days after sale, the buyer may return the animal to the farm of seller prior to calving for a refund of the full purchase price or for another mutually acceptable adjustment. It shall be the obligation of the seller to bear all expenses incurred for transportation of the animal in question to the farm of the seller. Any adjustment provided herein, if selected, shall absolve the seller from further liability.

HORNED/POLLED/SCURRED DEFINITIONS AND GUARANTEES

HORNED: An animal with a horn growth affixed to the skull that has or has not been removed. POLLED/SCURRED: An animal with rudimentary horn growth that will not develop into a horn. The rudimentary horn growth may or may not become affixed to skull at an older age.

POLLED: An animal with absence of horn growth. (An animal can have scurs and still be genetically polled.)

SMOOTH-POLLED: A smooth-polled individual has no scurs and does not develop scurs later in life.

MULTIPLE BLACK: indicates that the animal descends from a multiple generation pedigree of black animals, at a minimum both parents and all four grandparents were black. It does not guarantee that the animal will be homozygous for the black color.

MULTIPLE POLLED: indicates that the animal descends from a multiple generation pedigree of polled/scurred animals, at a minimum both parents and all four grandparents were polled/scurred. It does not guarantee that the animal will be homozygous for the polled trait.

HOMOZYGOUS BLACK HOMOZYGOUS POLLED WARRANTY All warranties regarding cattle being homozygous black or homozygous polled, or both, are agreements between the original buyer and seller and extend only to the original buyer. The liability of the seller shall not exceed the amount of the original purchase price and the seller must be notified in writing within 24 months following the date of purchase for this warranty to be enforceable. In the event an animal sold as homozygous black or homozygous polled is determined to be heterozygous for the warranted trait, the seller will make satisfactory replacement or refund the purchase price within a reasonable time. The seller must have the opportunity to inspect the calf in question and, at his cost, blood type or DNA test the calf and its parents and perform such other tests as necessary to confirm that the calf is heterozygous for the trait in question.

When an animal is sold as “eligible for registry” or “registry applied for,” the seller shall be responsible for obtaining the certificate of registry and for the proper transfer of the certificate to the purchaser including full payment of transfer fees.

PURCHASER’S RISK: Each animal becomes the property of and therefore is also the risk of the purchaser as soon as it is sold, except it shall be the obligation of the seller to see that animals are fed and cared for free of charge to the buyer until unloaded for shipment or until the expiration of forty-eight (48) hours after the sale, whichever occurs first.
