PHYSICAL OWNERSHIP AND SEMEN INTERESTS
Aligned with our commitment to deliver the highest quality genetics, we need to protect our ability and access to all genetics sold into the market place.
Te Mania Angus retains the right to collect semen from all bulls sold. This is strictly for Te Mania’s own use, and/or for progeny testing within Team Te Mania commercial herds. If the right to collect semen is exercised, Te Mania Angus would consult with the new owner of the bull to arrange a convenient time for collection, with cost to Te Mania Angus.
In the case of syndication, which may be arranged at, or after the sale, the joint owners of the bull must be nominated to Te Mania Angus within three months from the date of sale. Semen may only be used within the nominated owners’ herds, and may not be on-sold to outside parties.
If the bull is on-sold at a later date, these conditions carry forward. Te Mania Angus retain no interest in the physical ownership nor the salvage value of the bull.
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 * (see below), less the salvage value. * The guarantee covers the purchase value of the bull, without interest, cost and damages.
The guarantee shall apply providing 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 guarantee is reduced 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 that is purchased does not possess a reasonable fertility, although not totally infertile, any dispute that may arise shall be settled by an arbitrator appointed by the auctioneers and must be lodged within 12 calendar months from date of sale.
We recommend that all purchasers discuss injury insurance of their bulls at the sale with Elders Ltd or their Agent. This guarantee is in addition to the normal terms and conditions governing auction sales.
All the sale bulls have been ear notched and screened for BVDV (also known as Pestivirus) and have been found to have a high immunity to BVDV and it is therefore not necessary to vaccinate. We recommend that you consult your vet regarding an ongoing BVDdV programme for your herd.
All the sale bulls are vaccinated for Vibriosis and given a booster. We recommend annual boosters are given to all bulls.
All of our bulls receive 7 in 1 vaccinations at threemonths of age, six weeks later and a booster as a yearling. They are drenched at weaning and periodically according to worm counts.
All Te Mania Angus bulls are examined by a veterinarian prior to sale day which includes palpation of the sexual anatomy and the circumference of the testicles. The jaw is checked for correct bite.
Te Mania Angus is J-BAS 8 accredited, the highest level of bio-security accreditation in the new, national approach to the prevention of Johne’s disease (JD) in cattle. J-BAS focuses on managing on-farm biosecurity risk rather than controlling disease through regulation, and treats JD as just one of many diseases that producers must manage within their business.
