HORSE RACE STYLE AUCTION CLOSING FORMAT FOR THIS SALE! WHEN TIME EXPIRES, ALL LOTS ARE DECLARED SOLD!

ORIGINAL ENDING TIME: 8 PM EDT (7 PM CDT) WITH EXTENDED BIDDING TO FOLLOW! EXTENDED BIDDING WILL CONTINUE UNTIL THERE IS NO BIDDING FOR 5 MINUTES!

WHY? AHA has decided to use the Horse Race Style Auction closing. With this option, all lots will close simultaneously. A few benefits to this style of auction - Buyer has the CHOICE to switch to any lot in the offering if he is outbid on his current choice; buyer does not have to deal with the "seller's order" of sale because all lots are offered and bid on simultaneously; and the buyer has true choices and more time to make decisions.

Extended Bidding means that the auction is not declared closed until there have been five minutes of inactivity on this sale. If there is any bidding during the inactivity period, the auction is extended until there is no bidding for five minutes during the inactivity period. You can always check the time remaining information that appears at the top of the page. NOTE - Time remaining will appear under each lot! REMEMBER TO CLICK ON REFRESH FOR UP-TO-DATE TIME REMAINING! For this sale, the extended bidding period is 5 minutes.

**Example 1: Auction closes at 8 PM. There is no bidding from 7:55 PM to 8 PM. All lots are declared closed and the sale ends at 8 PM.
**Example 2: Auction closes at 8 PM. There is a bid placed at 7:57 PM. Auction is extended by 5 minutes. No more bidding occurs. All lots are declared closed and the sale ends at 8:02 PM.
**Example 3: Auction closes at 8 PM. There is a bid placed at 7:57 PM. Auction is extended by 5 minutes until 8:02 PM. Another bid is placed at 8:01 PM. No more bids are placed. All lots are declared closed and the sale ends at 8:06 PM.

Maximum Bidding is a feature you may use during the duration of the auction. This feature allows you to place a private maximum bid that only you will know and allow the computer to bid on your behalf when another bidder places a bid on the same lot you are seeking. Visit the Online Auction Tips for more information.

Consult with the Terms and Conditions for Online Auctions prior to bidding online. Specific terms and conditions may be provided on a lot by lot basis. Check the auction lot individual descriptions or call the seller directly to discuss terms and conditions in advance of bidding.

All Embryo and Semen Packages will be your bid x the number in the package. Example $400 x 3 Embryos = $1200 final bid and auction price! When you submit your bid the extension number will multiply times the number in the package to create a total final auction price. This number will create your final invoice and sale price. Each lot will say in the notes selling 2,3,5 etc. Items selling with a RESERVE will have in the notes 'Selling with Reserve.' When reserve is met it will flash on the screen Reserve Has Been Met. The balance of the lots in the auction sell without reserve at or above the starting bid unless otherwise noted.

Note the Buyers Bonus in some lots as sellers offer incentives to buyers free with your purchase. The following terms apply to each lot unless otherwise stated under each individual lot.

Standard Breeding Guarantee and Genetic Defect Disclaimer
We require that each consignor agree to the "Standard Breeding Guarantee and Genetic Defect Policies" endorsed the American Hereford Association. Should a defective calf result, buyer is responsible for reporting the defect and following through each of the breed associations steps and protocol or other breed registry standards. If animal is verified to be defective by the Hereford Association, buyer must submit a written copy of the verification to the Seller, The Wendt Group, Inc. and BuyHereford.com within 30 days after birth. Seller is responsible for refunding the purchase price in total or making an adjustment to the purchase price. This guarantee applies only to calves at birth that show signs of a genetic defect recognized by the breed association as there is not a test to determine if some genetic lines are carriers for a defect but do not show signs as an individual at birth. Unless an animal is listed on the individual breed association "genetic defect status list" the breed, breeder, and BuyHereford.com makes no representation of any kind as to whether an animal has a genetic defect. Consult with each breed association for more information. All transactions are between buyer and seller.

Embryos and semen will be held until the funds clear the bank. The transfer of registration certificates or artificial insemination certificates is the responsibility of the seller.

It is the seller’s responsibility to ship sold embryos and semen by a reasonably qualified shipping source.
