       with it an understanding by the vendor that the purchase
       price (without interest expense, costs of damages) will be
       refunded should the bull prove totally infertile or incapable
       of service. A bull shall be considered fertile having settled a
       cow in calf by natural means. If a purchaser shall complete
       the Association’s questionnaire regarding the circumstances
       of the females in question and those of the bull together with
       evidence that the said bull has not sustained any disease
       or injury since the time of the sale. The semen test shall
       not be taken in itself as a proof on infertility. Any complaint
       must  be  lodged  with Association  within  nine  (9)  calender

       purchaser. A veterinary certificate shall be procured by the
       purchaser when required. The undertaking is limited to the
       individual value of the bull as a breeder and does not extend
       to the loss of profits or otherwise sustained in the event of
       infertility  or  non-capacity  being  proved.  The  undertaking
       shall bind the executors or administrators of the vendor. Any
