Duty to Furnish Registration Certificate

 1. Certificate of Registration to Buyer

The Association holds the certificate of registration as an integral part of every purebred transaction. In every change of ownership of a Mangalitsa swine, the seller shall, at his/her own expense, furnish to the buyer a certificate of registration, and cause to be recorded, a certificate showing transfer of ownership and the date of sale, unless the right to such certificate is specifically waived, in writing, by the buyer at the time of completion of sale. Failure to record and transfer by breeder should be cause for immediate suspension from allrights and privileges of this Association.

 

2. Breeding Certificate

Should the change of ownership of a Manglitsa swine involve a bred sow or bred gilt, a certificate of breeding service on a form prescribed by the Association must be furnished by the seller to the buyer.
