Country Page Terms and Conditions
Bidding on the Country Page
Superior’s goal is to make the Country Page a user friendly method to buy and sell cattle. We work hard for both buyers and sellers to make the transactions as smooth as possible. Due to daily changes in the cattle market we have developed some guidelines.
- If a buyer bids the asking price the system will mark the cattle sold.
- If a bid is placed below the asking price you will be contacted with the current bid.
- If you accept a lower offer than the asking price, the offer will not be final until the Country Page staff has confirmed the bid with the buyer.
- Any new lot consigned to the Country Page will expire after 2 weeks. Contract enhancements can be made by the Rep or Country Page Staff and re-listed on the site with a new lot number. Communications will be sent to buyer, consignor’s rep and Country Page staff as lot expiration nears and then when it expires.
- You can place a bid at any time.
- By placing a bid on the Country Page, you have submitted an offer to buy the consignment of cattle.
- If you bid the asking price the system will hold the cattle on your buyer number. Once you receive confirmation from the Country Page staff the cattle will be marked sold.
- Unless you bid the asking price, your offer will not be executed until the consignor has been contacted by the Country Page staff.
- Bids placed on the Country Page will expire after 3 business days. (Weekends and holidays will be excluded.) Communications will be sent to the buyer, the consignor’s rep and the Country Page staff when bid expiration nears and then when it expires.
Breeding Stock Consignments- A minimum bid requirement will be placed on Breeding Stock lots at no lower than 15% of the asking price rounded to the lower $25 bid increment.
