McKenzie Bull Sale 2017 Sale Terms and Conditions
Bulls will sell in the order listed in the catalog. The LOT number can be found on the green tag in the left ear. Sale order is determined by average daily gain within the following groups: Registered Larger Bulls, Commercial Larger Bulls, Registered Smaller Bulls and Commercial Smaller Bulls. Please listen for announcements regarding sale order.
Commercial bulls are non-registerable bulls. These bulls are treated just like our registered bulls, they have all the data including genetic testing. The reason they are considered commercial is due to a registration mishap over 10 years ago and we have kept only the top producing commercial cows in the herd. As they are 100% pure Angus, we can use the genetic testing tools and can therefore make some prediction as to how they will contribute to your herd.
Fertility and Health:
All sale bulls are guaranteed virgin and have passed a breeding soundness exam with excellent semen quality. Bulls older than 1 year have been trichomoniasis tested. The testing of these animals was performed on February 20 and 21, 2017 by Dr. Ronald Box, DVM.
All bulls in sale have been BVD-PI tested and have been found negative for BVD-PI. Testing was performed by Kansas State University Veterinary Labs.
OUT OF STATE TRAVEL: All bulls sold will be able to travel on the day of sale. PLEASE let the cashier know that you will be needing health papers and we will have those available for you.
Buyers are responsible for transportation of bulls purchased at the sale. To arrange transportation of bulls please contact Sarah or Houston to arrange transportation. New Mexico buyers will have the option of picking up their bulls at the MLL Palma Ranch; 40 miles west of Santa Rosa at no additional charge.
All bulls will be paid for before loading unless other arrangements are made. Please see the cashier to settle up prior to loading your bull; you will need your invoice/loading ticket when picking up your bull(s). Please listen to general announcements indicating location of loading and personnel responsible for loading. Please help us and double check the ear tag and lot number to ensure that you are getting the bull you purchased.
Guarantee: We guarantee that all animals in the sale are fertile to the best of our knowledge. If a bull is injured at any time in the first breeding season so as to make them functionally infertile, we will offer a suitable replacement if available. If not available, we will offer you a credit equal to the bull’s purchase price minus the salvage value received for that bull. We ask that you contact us prior to the disposal of the animal. HOWEVER, we cannot offer a guarantee on a death of an animal.
It is important to consider that these are young bulls; they will need to be taken care of to ensure that they continue to grow out good and be able to serve your herd. It is essential that a young bull not get too thin and are turned out at a stocking ratio of 15 cows/1 bull.
