DNA STRESS STATEMENT

  • No known stress positive or stress carrier Duroc, Hampshire, Landrace or Yorkshire animals will be allowed to be exhibited or sold at any NSR-sponsored event.
  • Such warranty is, however, solely that of the seller and not that of the American Landrace Association (ALA), American Yorkshire Club (AYC), Hampshire Swine Registry (HSR) or the United Duroc Swine Registry (UDSR).
  • The ALA, AYC, HSR and UDSR assume no responsibility or liability in connection with such warranty by the seller.
  • If any NSR purebred animal sold at this conference is found to be a carrier of the stress gene, the purchaser has the right to receive full refund of the purchase price from the seller.
  • DNA testing for the stress gene must be done within 60 days of the sale date and all costs associated with testing for stress must be paid by the purchaser. The seller has the right to review the test results and the right to re-test the animal at a laboratory of his/her choice.
  • Cost associated with re-test by the seller is at the seller’s expense. There will be no refund of NSR commission from stress-carrier animals.

BREEDING ANIMAL SALE

  • A minimum of 60% of the number of each sex (boars and gilts) shown will be selected for the sale. These animals will be selected with no set number selling from any single class. Animals not selected for the sale can be consigned to the sale for an additional fee of $20 per head; this must be done by the conclusion of the show. If the animal sells, the fee will be applied toward the sale commission. If the animal does not sell, the fee is forfeited.
  • All animals selected and cataloged for the sale MUST go through the auction. Sale commission will be 15 percent for all animals. If an animal that is selected and cataloged for sale does not go through the sale ring, the exhibitor will be banned from exhibiting at NSR events for one year and will be charged 15% of the average selling price of their respective breed sale. This amount must be paid before reinstatement will be allowed. The exception to this rule will be if an animal has become injured or ill and is inspected by an NSR staff member prior to the sale.
  • The NSR acts only as the agent between buyer and seller. If proper payment is made by the buyer in a timely manner the NSR will make settlement with the seller in approximately 30 days after the sale.

PUREBRED BREED ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

  • By entering any purebred hog in the Fall Classic, the owner warrants that the hog meets specific breed requirements.
  • Such warranty, however, is solely that of the seller and not that of the HSR, ALA, AYC and UDSR and the HSR, ALA, AYC and UDSR assumes no responsibility or liability in connection with such warranty by the seller.
  • For information on NSR breed eligibility requirements, please visit http://nationalswine.com/pedigree_services/breed_eligibility.php
  • If any Hampshire, Landrace or Yorkshire animal sold at the Fall Classic is found to be a carrier of the color gene after being tested through the procedures approved by the HSR, ALA and AYC, the seller agrees that he/she will promptly refund the full purchase price to the buyer. There will be no refund of NSR commission from animals that are carriers of the color gene.
