|Welcome to The Bucking Stock Connection
The Bucking Stock Connection acts as venue to allow rodeo stock breeders
to buy and sell rodeo stock in a auction-style format, commonly referred to as
"online auctions"or "auctions".
100% Customer Satisfaction is what we always strive for, nothing less
The Bucking Stock Connection is not an Auction Service. Although we are referred to as an “Online Auction” web site it is
important to realize that we are not a traditional "auctioneer." Instead, The Bucking Stock Connection acts as a venue to
allow rodeo stock breeders to buy and sell rodeo stock in an auction-style format commonly referred to as "online auctions"
or "auctions." We are not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, we have no control
over the quality, health, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay
for items. We cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction. Consequently, we do not transfer
legal ownership of an item from the seller to the buyer; all transactions are made between the seller and the highest bidder
at the close of the auction.
By consigning an animal, semen, or embryo for auction on The Bucking Stock Connection, you agree to the terms and
conditions and to abide by all rules set forth by The Bucking Stock Connection.
By placing an animal on the website for auction you will automatically be liable for a administration fee. No commission will
be taken out, just an administration fee, payable to Marcia Bennett
Here is how you will be charged:
If your consignment Lot# doesn't sell , you pay no additional fees.
If your consignment lot brings $1-$1,000, you will be charged a administration fee of $25
If your consignment lot brings $1,001-$2000, you will be charged a administration fee of $50

You may place a reserve on your animal, semen, or embryo, Seller has the Right to Lower the Reserve at any time before
the closing of the sale, giving the High Bidder the Option to buy for that Price.
If the reserve is not met you have the option to re-consign or sell to the highest bidder. If for any reason a successful
bidder defaults on a sale where the reserve is met you may request the Bucking Stock Connection to contact the second
high bidder to sell the animal, semen, or embryo to him on his bid.
By consigning on The Bucking Stock Connection you are stating that the animal consigned is in good health, and that the
breeding is as advertised. If the animal received is in poor health, or the DNA does not come back as advertised from a
reputable registry service, you are required to give the buyer a full refund and you will not be refunded any payments from
The Bucking Stock Connection for use of our services.
Failure to issue a refund will result in being Black Listed from The Bucking Stock Connection and you will lose your right to

EFFECTIVE Nov. 1 2015, The Bucking Stock Connection terms and conditions on semen auctions will slightly change.. We
welcome semen consignments, however, any semen listed on the auction site as of Nov. 1st 2015 must have a minimum
reserve of $25 per straw price in order to consign. If its a "package" price, the straws must equal out to a minimum of $25
