  • be sure the name(s) on the manifest(s) appear the same as the name(s) the brand is registered in. If otherwise, then a properly completed bill of sale must be provided and shall serve as a means of proving ownership.
  • when consigning Finance Association cattle the consignor must have the manifest made out in the name of the feeder / breeder association, whether the cattle are carrying the association brand or not. Otherwise an association release form must be provided.
