     Fee per Breeding/Consignor Unit per breed, payable to the Alberta

     and remain the sole property of the Alberta Cattle Breeders Association
     if the bull is culled, rejected, or if entries are cancelled after the official

     commission. A sale commission of 8% of the last dollar bid will be
     in effect.

6.   A non-refundable entry fee for bulls not comply with the standards of
     entry to the sale (no refund on vet outs). In order to facilitate stabling,

                                                                                  8

     compliance with the individual breed association and an application for
     transfer on the proper form, duly signed in ink, with the name of the

     of a member of the Association who is a bona-fide resident of Alberta
     and who is conducting a livestock breeding establishment of the breed
     in Alberta. Bulls not bred by the contributor and bred in Alberta must

    within the Breeding/Consignor Unit, thus allowing ONE VOTING

    a Breeding/Consignor unit has multi breeds they would be allowed a
    vote for each paid membership). However, persons interested in the
    cattle industry in Alberta, although not breeders or cattle owners, may
    join the Association as Associate Members, upon payment of $10.60
    (GST included) per year. Such Associate Members may attend the
    meeting of the Association, and take part in the discussions but will not
    be eligible for office, and may not vote.

    required. Any products/solutions/liquids administered internally or
    externally to alter the conformation or weight of the animal is

    deduction of $7.42 per bull weighed will be paid to the Alberta Cattle
    Breeders. Special lighting is not allowed. Feed and bedding must be
    kept to a minimum in the barn as it constitutes a fire hazard. A fine will
    be levied on the exhibitor if the ruling is not adhered to.

    Cattle Breeders Association, is deemed uncontrollable or exhibits a
    temperament that may cause injury or damage will be asked to leave the

     (any such bulls considered inferior in quality or not being
     representative of the breed, or not being of soundness in so far as it may
     be determined by physical examination) from the sale premises.

3.   All bulls should be in good health and condition before being shipped
     to the sale, as culling will be severe.

4.   The entry fee paid by the consignor to the Association in respect of any
     such animals removed or rejected as aforesaid shall belong to and
     remain the sole property of the Association.

5.   Livestock Manifest: All bulls will be brand inspected and a livestock
     manifest must be presented at the weigh scale.

6.   Tattoo Inspection: The tattoo of each animal will be checked by the
     Inspector. Unless the tattoo corresponds with the pedigree and is
     legible to the inspector, the animal will be refused entry. The
     inspector’s decision as to the legibility of the tattoo is final. Once a
     bull has been examined at the scale, there will be absolutely no re-
     tattooing.

     WPDA requirements for three-year-old bulls.

3.   Birth Weights: Birth weights may be noted on the official entry form.
     If they are not available, please mark N/A on the entry form. Birth

     required to have a completed Bull Breeding Soundness Evaluation
     form (Western Canadian Assoc. of Bovine Practitioners). A
     qualified veterinarian must issue this form. Incomplete or illegible
     forms can result in refused entry. All bulls must be semen tested
     "satisfactory" within 30 days prior to sale.          The scrotal
     circumference must appear on the semen certificate. Bulls may be
     subject to re-measurement and semen test at the discretion of the
     official inspector appointed by the Alberta Cattle Breeders
     Association.

                Section VI: Breeding Guarantee

1.   Should a bull fail to prove a breeder after being used on cows known to
     be breeders, the matter shall be reported in writing to the consignor
     within six months following date of purchase. If satisfactory agreement
     cannot be reached between buyer and seller, the Association will
     attempt to mediate a settlement.

2.   Association is Agent Only: It is to be clearly understood that the
     Association is only acting as a medium between the buyer and seller.
     The Association is not in any way responsible for failure on the part of
     either party to live up to their obligations, neither does the Association
     assume any financial obligations to collect or enforce collection of
     monies between parties, and any legal action taken in exceptional cases,
     must be between the buyer and seller.

3.   The consignor is not responsible for damage caused by foreign bodies
     after the bull is sold, or for sickness not apparent at sale time.

4.   All transportation charges on bulls returned to the consignor are for
     account of the purchaser. No incidental expenses such as feed, care,
     veterinary charges, etc., will be charged by either party when making
     settlement.

5.   Under the Breeding Guarantee, in no event will the consignor be liable
     to the purchaser for more than the purchase price paid at the Calgary
     Bull Sale for the bull in question.


            Section VII: Catalogue and Sale Order

1.   Entries will be catalogued and sold in four alphabetical groups: A - E,
     F - L, M - R, and S - Z. These groups rotate annually, by moving the
     group selling first in a given year, to the end the following year.
     Further, the letters in each of the four groups also rotate annually by

                                                                            14
     moving the letter appearing last in a given year, to the beginning the
     following year. The following will be treated as one letter: IJK, PQ,
     UV, and XYZ. In 2008 the entries will be catalogued and sold in the
     following order: (C, D, E, A, B), (H, IJK, L, F, G), (O, PQ, R, M, N)
     and (W, XYZ, S, T, UV).

2.   The consignor of the Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion
     will sell at the start of their respective sales. The consignors of Grand
     Champion and Reserve Grand Champion have the option of selling the
     remainder of their string either after the sale of the Champions or in
     catalogue order.

3.   Bulls sell in entirety and entire ownership changes hands at the fall of
     the auctioneer's hammer.

4.   All semen drawn prior to sale and disposition of same must be
     announced and declared publicly prior to sale.


        Section VIII: General Rules and Regulations

1.   Liability: Not withstanding anything to the contrary herein contained,
     it is understood that each consignor, by the act of entry for exhibiting,
     waives all claims against the Alberta Cattle Breeders Association
     and/or the Calgary Exhibition & Stampede, and/or any of the members,
     officials or agents thereof, for any and all injury, loss or damage, which
     he/she, his/her employees, helpers and/or property may sustain arising
     in any way out of the operations or activities of the said Association
     and/or Stampede, officers, members or agents and indemnifies the said
     Association, and/or Stampede officer, member or agents from and
     against any loss or damage sustained by the said Association and/or
     Stampede by reason of any claims made by any of his helpers or
     employees or their executors, administrators, or assign and that any
     helpers or assistants introduced to or engaged by any consignor through
     the said Association and/or Stampede, or through their members,
     officers, or agents shall be at the sole risk and responsibility of such
     consignors.


2.   In case of typographical or other errors discovered, the Auctioneer will
     announce corrections and a memorandum of such corrections shall take
                                                                            15
     precedence over the printed matter in the catalogue. Buyers are
     therefore cautioned to pay attention to the auctioneer's announcements.

3.   Management of Sale: The management will be under the control of the
     Executive Committee of the Alberta Cattle Breeders Association and
     the Manager will have entire charge of all bulls in the sale area, stable
     accommodation and routine.

4.   By-Bidding: There shall be no by-bidding by the owner of an animal
     or anyone authorized by the owner. Statutory Declaration may be
     required from any buyer or seller to the effect that any purchase of sale
     is bona-fide and that there has been no by-bidding in connection
     therewith. Any owner guilty of by-bidding or authorizing anyone to do
     so for the owner will be excluded from participating in future sales for a
     term to be determined by the Executive Committee.

5.   Every care will be exercised by the management to prevent injury to or
     loss of property, and to insure prompt delivery of animals. The
     Association (acting only as agent) will not be responsible for any loss
     or damage that may occur, nor for any stock incorrectly routed, whether
     through negligence on the part of its officers or servants or not.
     Insurance against loss should be taken out by the owner should they
     consider it necessary. In all cases, however, the influences of the
     Association will be exerted as far as possible, to hold all parties strictly
     to these regulations.

6.   The consignor hereby appoints and constitutes the Association as his
     agent for the purposes aforesaid with full power and authority to sub
     delegate its authority and powers.

7.   Purchase of Animals: All sales are to be in Canadian dollars, payable
     at par in Calgary. U.S. funds will be accepted at the current rate of
     exchange for the purchase of all livestock. The Secretary is prepared to
     purchase animals for persons unable to attend the sale personally. The
     greatest care will be used in executing such orders in accordance with
     instructions given by the purchaser and no charge will be made for this
     service. A purchaser should send a cheque in the amount he is willing
     to pay. Proper refund will be made if a suitable animal can be
     purchased for less than the amount sent.



                                                                              16
8.   Delivery: Sellers are responsible for the delivery of bulls within
     Alberta borders and coordinate the delivery to points beyond. A
     $50 per bull discount will be credited to the buyer transporting
     their bull(s). This will be deducted from the consignors account.
     Sellers and Purchasers must coordinate all necessary transportation
     arrangements and let the settlement office know. The seller must water
     and feed his entries. Purchasers must supply feed for the animal(s)
     while in transit.

8.   Feed, Water, Etc.: An initial base of bedding will be supplied. All
     contributors will be required to supply all necessary feed and care for
     their bulls up to and including the last day of the current year's sale.
     Any contributor failing to comply with these regulations may be
     excluded from participating in future sales held by this Association.
     Sellers or their agents will be required to take care of their animals
     immediately upon arrival at point of sale, have the animals placed in the
     stalls, remain in attendance with them, and feed and water them. Feed
     and straw must be kept to a minimum in the barn, as it constitutes a fire
     hazard.

9.   Feed and Loading Charges: A fee will be charged to the purchaser for
     feeding (hay only) and caring for the animals from conclusion of sale
     until loaded, where the animals are held by instructions of purchaser.

10. Release of Bulls: Consignors are prohibited to teardown or load
    out bulls until all Breed Sales are completed. No bulls may be
    removed from the sale premises without a release slip, which must
    be presented to designated staff upon release.

11. Disputes: If any disputes arise between two or more bidders it shall be
    settled by the animal or animals being again put up and resold. The
    decision of the Auctioneer shall be final in all such cases.

12. Ownership and Settlement: Should any purchaser fail to settle for his
    purchase, the Association reserves the full power to re-sell the animal,
    in cooperation with the seller to the best advantage, either publicly or
    privately, without further intimation, and any loss arising from such
    resale, together with keep and all other expenses, will be collected from
    the defaulter.

13. Immediately after each purchase is declared, the risk of the animals
                                                                           17
    shall be exclusively with the purchaser, and it is declared that until a
    settlement shall be made in the terms of those conditions, the delivery
    of the animals shall be suspended.

14. The secretary will have power to give receipt in full for all payments
    for stock and will remit by mail the amount realized less the proper
    charges. Cheques will be available for pick up on WEDNESDAY,
    MARCH 12, 2008 in the Agriculture Department of the Calgary
    Exhibition and Stampede, 2nd level, Agriculture Building. After that
    time cheques will be mailed, provided registration paper(s) and
    transfer(s) are in order.

15. Executive Committee Right: The Executive Committee reserves the
    right to decide any point not covered by the rules which said committee
    considers necessary in the proper regulations and management of sale.

16. Sale Agreement: Every person who contributes a bull to the sale and
    everyone who bids at the sale, by doing so agrees to the foregoing
    terms and conditions of the sale.

17. City By-Law 4070: Specifically states in part: "All electrical
    equipment which has a metal frame or enclosure must be properly
    grounded by means of three wire cords and caps". Failure to comply
    with this requirement could mean cancellation of privileges to use
    electrical power. We are advised that this by-law is applicable to
    exhibitors utilizing such equipment in Stampede Park.

18. Private Sales: Bulls consigned to the sale must be sold by auction.
    Animals not entered for sale will not be allowed on the sale premises.

19. Stall Cards: Stall cards supplied by the Alberta Cattle Breeders
    Association must be posted above each bull. Consignors will not be
    allowed to advertise other sales. THERE WILL BE NO TAMPERING
    WITH THE OFFICIAL STALL CARDS.

20. Stall Signs: Only signs of consignors in the Calgary Bull Sale can be
    displayed in the stalls at the Calgary Bull Sale.

21. Nose Ring and Halters: Bulls must wear a nose ring and a suitable
    halter. Bulls must be halter broken and each animal supplied with a
    good halter. If this is not adhered to, the superintendent has
                                                                         18
    instructions to provide a suitable halter, the cost to be collected from
    the seller of the animal. All bulls must have a nose ring or they will be
    refused entry. Nose rings are not to be removed while bulls are housed
    in the Agriculture Building on Stampede Park.

22. Neck Ropes: All animals must be tied with a suitable halter and
    substantial neck rope. The neck ropes must remain on the bulls at all
    times within the Agriculture Building and must be left on the animals
    after the sale. A fine of $10.60 (GST included) per animal will be
    charged to any consignor in non-compliance.

23. Floor Fans: Floor fans or butt fans will not be allowed in the
    Agriculture Building.

24. Insurance: Consignors desiring insurance must give this matter their
    personal attention.

25. Smoking Policy: In accordance with the city of Calgary by-law, the
    Agriculture Building is a non-smoking facility. There will be no
    smoking allowed.

26. Alcohol Policy: The serving and consumption of alcoholic beverages in
    a non-licensed area of a public building is illegal and in contravention
    of the AGLC regulations. Additionally, this practice poses liability and
    safety issues for all stakeholders (directors, agriculture representatives,
    youth and you the consignors). The serving and consumption of
    alcoholic beverages in a non-licensed area is prohibited.

27. Failure to comply with rules as stated in this book may result in
    suspension from participation in the current year's sale and future
    sales at the Calgary Bull Sale.
