LIVESTOCK

Services

  • Jordan’s services on this website and at its various facilities are available only to, and may be used only by, persons who are able to enter into legally binding contracts. If you are an individual, you must be at least 18 years of age. If you are entering into a sale, transaction or agreement with Jordan on behalf of a business, you represent that you have the authority to bind that entity to this agreement.
  • All sales, auctions, brokering services, websites, and any other services provided by Jordan (“Services”) incorporate these terms and conditions to every sale, transaction, or agreement.
  • Jordan offers traditional weekly sales of cattle as a marketing option for Buyers and Sellers. This Agreement and Terms and Conditions apply to all sales whether physically on Jordan’s properties, remotely via online, or through other method of sale including brokering sales between parties, such as done in county cattle sales.  All live and online auctions will be referred to as Livestock Auctions.
  • Jordan and its employees and independent contractors are not agents, representatives, brokers, employees, or partners of Buyer or Seller. Nor is Buyer or Seller an agent, representative, broker, employee, or partner of Jordan. This Agreement shall not be interpreted or construed to create an association, agency, or partnership between the parties.
  • In addition to its traditional sales at its facilities, Jordan broadcasts selected sales live on the Internet. Jordan’s Services include, but are not limited to, broadcasting selected live sales, providing video to preview upcoming auctions, as well as allowing you to bid and purchase livestock with any of the Livestock Auctions listed on its website. Jordan provides a broadcasting platform through CattleUSA.com that allows users to view and listen to sales and make offers and purchases of livestock remotely at auction. CattleUSA.com’s Terms and Conditions and Terms of Use are fully incorporated into this Agreement and Terms and Conditions.
  • You acknowledge and agree that by placing a bid on livestock, you represent and warrant that you shall not misrepresent your ability to close the transaction pursuant to the terms and conditions of sale, that you have the capacity to close the transaction, and that you have actual authority to enter a bid.
  • When you commit to buy an item (bid), you enter into a legally binding, non-retractable contract to purchase livestock and you are agreeing to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth. Once your bid has been accepted, you are obligated to complete the transaction in accordance with this Agreement.
  • Buyers at the physical auction have the benefit of seeing, smelling, and experiencing the auction in person. They may be able to notice qualities about the cattle that you cannot see on an Internet feed. You can hire a professional buyer at the auction to help you assess quality, health, and condition. We consider this money well spent. You may not be able to access these traits as well as buyers at the physical auction.
  • The Buyer owns the livestock if he or she is the highest bid at auction and Buyer’s bid has been accepted. The Buyer cannot thereafter reject the livestock.
  • Any Buyer under these Terms and Conditions understand and agrees that these Terms and Conditions apply to all purchases of livestock at any of Jordan’s facilities and for any remote or online sales including country cattle sales. The Buyer will be financially responsible for the livestock that are purchased, whether the purchased animals are for the Buyer or a third-party’s benefit. Except for sales where livestock are to be delivered at a later date, accounts must be paid at the time of purchase
  • Jordan issues market reports periodically in writing, on its website and through other media and social media channels (“Market Reports”). These Market Reports are for informational purposes only and by reading such reports, Buyer and Seller acknowledge that these Market Reports are merely informational and are relied upon at Buyer’s and Seller’s discretion. Jordan is not responsible for such reliance by any Buyer or Seller or third-party. The prices in the Market Reports represent previously sold livestock. Jordan does not warrant or guarantee the accuracy of these Market Reports. Jordan does not guarantee that any price listed in a Market Report is the price that a Seller or Buyer will receive when utilizing Jordan’s Services.
  • Jordan does not provide veterinary services.  Jordan only provides, through an independent contractor, medical treatment or services for livestock as required by the Texas Animal Health Commission or state or federal law.

Condition of the Livestock

  • Jordan is not responsible for representations regarding any livestock’s standard, quality, health, age, breeding soundness, pedigree, parentage or grade (collectively “Quality”) nor any representations pertaining to sponsorship, approval, source, origin, characteristics, uses, registration status, genetic abnormalities or benefits (collectively “Condition”). All representations made by the Seller to the Buyer and vice versa are said Seller’s or Buyer’s representations. If there is any question or confusion about livestock’s Quality or Condition, the Buyer or Seller acknowledge that any issues will be raised with the respective buyer or seller. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Jordan is not liable, and you agree to not hold Jordan responsible, for any damages or losses resulting directly or indirectly from such representations regarding the Quality or Condition of the livestock. The Buyer is responsible for verifying all representations of the Seller including those passed on by Jordan from the Seller to Buyer. Jordan makes no independent representations about the Quality or Condition of the livestock.
  • Jordan does not guarantee heifers to be unpregnant or open.  Any representation that animals are unpregnant or open cannot be verified by Jordan and must be verified by a licensed veterinarian. The Buyer is responsible for requesting any pregnancy checks to verify that heifers are unpregnant or open, and a pregnancy check shall be at the Buyer’s expense unless an alternative arrangement is negotiated between the Buyer and the Seller. By accepting these Terms and Conditions, Buyer acknowledges that Jordan does not perform any pregnancy testing and does not rely on Jordan for any such testing.
  • Jordan does not guarantee any heifers to be virgin cattle. The Buyer acknowledges that verification of such a claim is impossible and acknowledges that any heifers sold as virgin are merely represented as unpregnant and not carrying a calf.
  • Health entry requirements for the state of entry are the responsibility of the Buyer.  If health certificates, documentation, or tests are required for shipment to the Buyer’s destination, it shall be at the Buyer’s request and expense. 
  • Seller warrants that Seller has good and marketable title to the livestock and that the livestock will be delivered free of all security interests, liens or encumbrances. If said livestock are subject to a lien, security interest or chattel mortgage such interest shall be satisfied by the Seller prior to or at delivery.

Seller agrees to defend title to the livestock and indemnify and hold Jordan and Buyer harmless from any and all loss or damage on account of any liens, encumbrances, or other defects in title.

  • Every effort has been made to assure the correctness of the information published by Jordan in conjunction with Services, either on its website or in printed materials.  Any deviations from the information published will be agreed upon by all parties before the sale of the cattle. All announcements from the auction block shall take precedence over published information.

Limitation of Liability

  • The risk of loss of any and all livestock, due to injury or death, passes to Buyer at the time that the livestock are loaded on the carrier. At no time does Jordan own or hold the risk of loss of any of the livestock regardless of whether the livestock are physically located on the Jordan’s properties or at Jordan’s facilities for any length of time. The Seller maintains all risk of loss until such risk of loss is transferred to the Buyer.
  • Jordan does not guarantee the continuous operation of, or access to, the Services. Bid update and other notification functionality from auctioneers and/or Livestock Auctions may not occur in real time. Such functionality is subject to delays beyond Jordan’s control and can place Internet bidders at a disadvantage to in-person bidders.

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT USE OF THE SERVICES AND ANY PURCHASE OF LIVESTOCK IS AT YOUR OWN RISK AND THAT JORDAN PROVIDES THE SERVICES ON AN “AS IS” BASIS “WITH ALL FAULTS” AND “AS AVAILABLE.” JORDAN DOES NOT GUARANTEE THE ACCURACY OR TIMELINESS OF INFORMATION AVAILABLE FROM THE SERVICES.


ACCORDINGLY, JORDAN MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, GUARANTEES, OR CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES OR LIVESTOCK OFFERINGS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUALITY OR SAFETY OF THE LIVESTOCK, OR THE TRUTH OR ACCURACY OF ANY OFFERINGS.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT COMPUTER AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS ARE NOT FAULT-FREE AND OCCASIONAL PERIODS OF DOWNTIME OCCUR. WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, OR ERROR-FREE OR THAT AN UNACCEPTED OR LOSING INTERNET BID WON’T OCCUR.

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF JORDAN FOR ANY CLAIMS UNDER THESE TERMS, INCLUDING FOR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT YOU PAID US TO USE THE SERVICES. IN ALL CASES, JORDAN WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE THAT IS NOT REASONABLY FORESEEABLE.

  • To the extent permitted by applicable law, Jordan is not liable, and you agree to not hold Jordan responsible, for any damages or losses resulting directly or indirectly from:
    • your use of or your inability to access or use Jordan’s Services, or the content materials and functions related thereto;
    • delays or disruptions in Jordan’s Services;
    • glitches, bugs, errors, or inaccuracies of any kind in Jordan’s Services; or
    • the content, actions, or inactions of third parties, including items listed using Jordan’s Services.
  • It is the Buyer’s responsibility to verify all claims of the Seller to fit specific programs prior to purchase. There are no implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose on any livestock sold.
  • Jordan expressly disclaims all representations, warranties, and guarantees regarding the Quality and Condition of any livestock on Jordan’s properties, sold through Jordan’s Services, bought through Jordan’s Services, or acquired or sold as part of any transaction covered by these Terms and Conditions.
  • Jordan also expressly disclaims all representations, warranties, and guarantees regarding the Market Report accuracy, pricing information, or the current cattle market or a forecast of such a market.
  • Jordan expressly disclaims all liability and representations concerning veterinary services, opinions, and recommendations and diagnostic services, opinions, testing, or findings. Any veterinary opinions, services, and recommendations that occur with the Buyer or Seller during any auction, sale, or other interaction, are the veterinarian’s own views and representations. Additionally, any testing or test results or other information provided by diagnostic services is strictly a representation of the diagnostic service provider, and is not adopted or guaranteed by Jordan. By accepting these Terms and Conditions, you acknowledge that you are not relying on any statement by Jordan or its employees, independent contractors, or agents regarding veterinary services, health of the animal, or any animal’s Quality or Condition nor are you relying on such statements regarding any information from Jordan pertaining to diagnostic services, including tests and testing.

Payment

  • Sales are on a cash basis. If transactions involve livestock being delivered at a later date, then payment may be amended per the agreement between you and Jordan. If purchases are not paid as specified under these Terms and Conditions or as required under any contract amending these payment terms, Buyer will agree to pay the interest rate in the contract. If no interest rate is specified, then it will be the highest rate allowed by law until the full amount of the purchase price is paid in full.

Termination of Use

  • Concerning online Livestock Auctions, Jordan may, at its sole discretion, refuse to accept a person’s (or entity’s) registration, and may, at any time after accepting registration, terminate or refuse to permit a person’s (or entity’s) continuing use of the Services for any reason without notice.

You are responsible for your user profile, ID, and passwords. If you allow someone else access to use your user profile and ID and they use it to bid on livestock and are the highest bid accepted by the auctioneer, then you are responsible for completing the transaction and paying for the livestock. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you keep your user profile, ID, and password secret and allow no one else to use it. If you are logged in with your user profile and ID and it is used to bid by you or someone else then you will be responsible for payment of those livestock where the auctioneer accepts such bid and such bid is the high bid.

Proprietary Rights Complaint Process

  • Jordan is committed to complying with U.S. copyright law and to responding to claims of copyright infringement. Jordan will promptly process and investigate notices of alleged infringement and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Title 17, United States Code, Section 512 (“DMCA”).
  • Pursuant to the DMCA, notifications of claimed copyright infringement should be sent to a Service Provider’s Designated Agent. Notification must be submitted to the following Designated Agent for this site in the manner described below:

1. By sending an email to [email protected]; or

2. By sending a letter via U.S. mail to:

Copyright Agent

K. Jordan Enterprises

PO Box 158

San Saba, Texas 76877

For your complaint to be valid under the DMCA, you must provide the following information when providing notice of the claimed copyright infringement:

a. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner;

b. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed;

c. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of the infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled as well as information reasonably sufficient to permit Jordan to locate the material;

d. Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address;

e. A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or law;

f. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

(For more details on the information required for valid notification, see 17 U.S.C. 512(c))

Upon receipt of a fully completed and signed notification form, Jordan will disable access to the allegedly infringing materials and will promptly notify the individual who posted the materials that access has been disabled as is Jordan’s obligation under the Copyright Act. If your notification is unsigned or is not on Jordan’s form and does not contain the authorization language of Jordan’s form, Jordan will work with you to obtain a properly executed notification. If any of the other information is missing from your notification, however, Jordan will not be able to respond to your request.

Pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(g)(2), the individual who posted the materials may provide us with counter-notification that the materials were removed or disabled as the result of a mistake or misidentification of the materials. This counter-notification must (1) be signed, (2) include the individual’s name, address and telephone number, (3) include a statement that the individual is making the counter-notification under penalty of perjury, and (4) state that the person consents to the jurisdiction of the federal district court where his or her address is located. If Jordan receives such a counter-notification, and Jordan determines that Jordan would like to restore access to the materials, a copy will be sent to you notifying you that access to the materials will be restored within ten business days. Access will be restored between the tenth and fourteenth business day after Jordan receives a counter-notification unless you inform us that you have filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the individual who made the posting from engaging in infringing activity on Jordan’s network and servers. If Jordan determines that it does not want to restore access to the materials, you will not receive any further notification.

You should be aware that, under the DMCA, claimants who make misrepresentations concerning copyright infringement may be liable for damages incurred as a result of the removal or blocking of the material, court costs, and attorney’s fees.
