GUARANTEES AND WARRANTIES:
Re-Breeding Privilege /Live Cria Guarantee:
CRA and its custodian anticipate a live cria from a mating. A live cria is defined for the purposes of our contract to be one, which stands and nurses for at least 72 hours. Should the dam abort at any time after being confirmed by ultrasound to be pregnant to the herdsire, or should her cria be born dead, the dam owner is guaranteed a return privilege for the same dam or a substitute dam, during the same breeding season or the following breeding season at no additional herdsire fee. All other fees will still apply, i.e. vet, transport, etc.

Provide documentation that dam and cria have been tested negative for BVD virus prior to arrival of the service sire.
