CVCA Guarantee

  • Members selling in CVCA sales assume all responsibilities and liability for assuring that the required vaccinations according to CVCA rules were given to calves.
  • Heifers sold in CVCA feeder calf sales are guaranteed to be open. If the buyer has a veterinarian determine that a heifer is bred, the seller of the calf will be required to reimburse the buyer $200 per bred heifer. Failure to do so will forbid the sellers opportunity to sell in CVCA sales until payment is made.
  • Steers sold in CVCA feeder calf sales are guaranteed not to be stags or bulls. If the buyer purchases a stag or bull, the seller will be required to reimburse the buyer $150 per stag or bull calf. Failure to do so will forfeit the sellers opportunity to sell in CVCA sales until payment is made.
