Livestock Feedlot Contract Forms
The Forms Professionals Trust! ™
Beef is raised in three phases before it is processed: calves are raised on pasture and range land, as feeder cattle they feed on pasture, crop residue, and range land, and finally they go to feedlots, where they are fattened for slaughter. Feeder contracts are a type of futures contract based on young cattle that are sent to feedlots in preparation for slaughter. The Chicago Mercantile Exchange first introduced a feeder cattle contract in 1971.
It is important make sure the agreement is clear as to whether a bailment or an actual sale of the animals is intended. In order to constitute a bailment and not a sale, a fattening or raising agreement should provide that the owner agrees to provide the animals involved to the feeder with the owner retaining title to the animals, and the feeder or raiser is to feed or raise them for sale as the owner deems proper. This form is a sample of a sale rather than a bailment.
