This Sale will feature the Best Cattle Sales “All Bids In – All Lots Sold” or a modified “Horse Race” style closing format.

The sale starts to close at 6:55 PM on closing day as it takes 5 minutes of no bidding on ANY lot for the sale to close. If there is no bidding between 6:55 PM and 7 PM on closing day the sale will close. If there is a bid on ANY lot the sale remains open UNTIL all bidding activity ends. Every time there is a bid the clock resets and another 5 minutes is added to closing time. It is suggested to all bidders to watch your lots until the sale is completely closed.

Example 1: Auction closes at 7:00 PM. There is no bidding from 6:55 PM to 7:00 PM. All lots are declared closed and the sale ends at 7:00 PM.

Example 2: Auction closes at 7:00 PM. There is a bid placed at 6:56 PM and countdown clock resets to 5 minutes. Auction is extended. No more bidding occurs. All lots are declared closed and the sale ends at 7:01 PM.

Example 3: Auction closes at 7:00 PM. There is a bid placed at 6:57 PM and countdown clock resets to 5 minutes. Auction is extended until 7:02 PM. Another bid is placed at 7:00 PM. Another bid is placed at 7:04 PM. Another bid is placed at 7:08 PM and countdown clock resets to 5 minutes. Auction is extended. No more bids are placed. All lots are declared closed.

Upon receipt of payment, the seller will transfer the registration paper if applicable to the buyer as soon as possible. If full payment is not received within thirty (30) days, then upon written or electronic notice to buyer, the breeder shall retain ownership of animal with full property rights, including the ability to sell the animal to another buyer. Animals not paid within 30 days of the sale forfeit any future guarantees.

If an animal is purchased by an international buyer, the buyer is responsible to cover cost to transport the animal to and from quarantine facilities.

FEEDING TERMS: Cattle will be provided free care until 10/15/23, after which feed is billed at $20/head/day. These charges are not designed for the seller to make money, just to cover the costs. Any veterinary expense will be the owner’s obligation. All accounts will be billed monthly. Feed charges must be paid in full when the cattle are picked up.

LIABILITY: Ownership of the animal transfers at the time of sale and the buyer bears the risk of injury, disease, or death, which may occur.

In the event of a problem, the buyer is responsible to return the animal to J&L Cattle Services. No cash refund will be given. Buyer will be issued a credit or replacement animal.
If the animal’s problem was caused from natural disaster, nutrition, maintenance, misconduct, or virgin heifers flushed or IVF’s prior to natural calf then J&L Cattle Services has the right to refuse a credit or replacement animal to the buyer.
