  4. If the buyer/s breach/es any of these Terms and Conditions of Sale, Te Mania Angus may revoke the licence immediately.  Insemination of an animal in a herd not nominated on the Buyer Registration, is a breach of the licence.

OUR GUARANTEE 

Any Te Mania Angus bull that proves to be structurally unsound, infertile or incapable of service is guaranteed for up to three years from date of sale.   Under these circumstances Te Mania Angus will:

  1. Replace the bull with a satisfactory substitute if available, or
  2. Issue a refund equal to the value remaining*, less salvage value.  See below

The guarantee covers the purchase value of the bull, without interest, cost and damages.  The guarantee applies only if the bull’s incapacity is not caused by injury or disease contracted since leaving Te Mania.  

*The value remaining is calculated on the basis that the value reduces by one third of the purchase price for each year of service from the sale date.  A veterinary certificate must be supplied by the purchaser on request.

 If any bull purchased does not possess a reasonable fertility, although not totally infertile, any dispute arising shall be settled by an arbitrator appointed by the auctioneers and must be lodged within 12 calendar months from date of sale.

This guarantee is in addition to the normal terms and conditions governing auction sales.  We recommend all purchasers discuss injury insurance of their bulls at the sale with their Agent.
