Turner Ranches Prairie Performance Auction (TRPPA) Breeding Bull Guarantee

The TRPPA warrants its breeding bulls to be physically sound (correct legs, frame and stature without injury) at the time of loading onto the transport to the buyer’s location. Complete responsibility, risk of injury and/or death transfers to the buyer upon loading onto buyer’s transport. TRPPA warrants fertility of the bull (defined as a bull having a reproductive tract free of anatomical and semen abnormalities with normal sperm morphology and motility for bison bulls of that age class) up to June 14th of the current year upon completion of the following conditions.   

1)    Breeding bull buyers must fertility test purchased bulls at their expense between May 1 and May 31st of the current year by a third-party licensed veterinarian. If the bull fails the initial fertility test, TRPPA official veterinarian must be notified immediately and a follow-up fertility test will be scheduled with and administered by a mutually agreed upon independent veterinarian within 21 days of the initial test or by June 14th of the current year. Copies of all tests (including both the initial and follow-up fertility exams) and verification of the animals 18-digit ID will be provided to the TRPPA official veterinarian (inquiries@retranches.com).

2)    The follow-up test will be paid by TRPPA and the results of the follow-up test will be immediately forwarded to TRPPA’s official veterinarian.

3)    If the bull fails the follow-up fertility test and as a result is determined to be unsuitable for breeding purposes, the bull will be returned to the closest Turner Ranch or a mutually agreed upon location with ownership of the bull reverting to Turner Ranches. A full refund of the purchase price will be issued within five business days to the buyer of record.

If the buyer chooses not to fulfill the above conditions, TRPPA does not warrant the fertility of any breeding bull and no refund will be given if later fertility tests are deficient. TRPPA will not provide a replacement breeding bull that has failed two consecutive semen tests in the specified time and has been determined to be unsatisfactory for breeding purposes. The warranty is for full monetary refund only.
