Cattle

Asked January 31, 2017, 9:29 AM EST

We purchased cattle that were supposed to be bred 6 to 9 mo and most were not. I have every text and phone call recorded from seller. Is there anything I can do?

If there was a written guarantee and that had been substantiated by a third party pregnancy check there might be some recourse. Many of the organized sales will replace or reimburse if guarantees are not met through performance. The issue may be that they guarantee breeding (because of visual affirmation or because of artificial insemination) but they aren't guaranteeing pregnancy. I would consult with an attorney that has experience with farm litigation to see what course of action they suggest.
