Buyers of purebred, registered boars and gilts buy them
to be breeders. Many factors may affect an animal's breeding capabilities.
Some problems may be the result of management before sale; some may be
hereditary. Because of this, adjustments need to be a sharing of responsibilities.
If and when any said animal does prove to be non-breeder the following adjustments will be made: A non-breeder will be replaced free with the buyer keeping any salvage value. The buyer will also pay airfreight and insurance on the replacement when it is shipped on a subsequent order.
Know What You're Getting
Once you've chosen a supplier, it's time to choose the animals that have the genetic potential to do the job you want them to do in your herd. It's best to remember that you are not just buying reproduction machines, you are also buying improvements in your own breeding herd. If you buy seed stock carelessly, without knowing what you are getting, you could be buying a lot of problems for yourself. The purchases you make now are an important investment in your immediate future. Determine the weaknesses in your herd and try to select breeds that are strong in those traits.
