Pasture & Plate LLC, a Texas limited liability Company, d/b/a Ren and Bos Cattle Co. (“R+B”) may revise these Terms at any time by posting an updated version to this Web page. You should visit this page periodically to review the most current Terms because they are binding on you. The terms “you” and “User” as used herein refer to all individuals and/or entities accessing R+B.com for any reason.
You must be 18 years of age or older, or the age of majority as that is defined in your jurisdiction, whichever is older, to visit or use R+B.com in any manner. By visiting R+B.com or accepting these Terms, you represent and warrant to R+B that you have reached the age of majority in your jurisdiction, and that you have the right, authority and capacity to agree to and abide by these Terms.

2. Terms of Sale
R+B.com offers to consumers the opportunity to purchase portions of live cattle, with the intent that such cattle will be processed into beef and such beef will be shipped directly to consumers. Through R+B.com, you, as a consumer, can place a commitment to purchase a portion of such live cattle (each a “Commitment”). Once you have placed a Commitment, such Commitment cannot be cancelled or withdrawn for the duration of the listing period for such animal. When there is a sufficient amount of Commitments for a particular animal, such animal is considered a “Committed Animal”. At such time, you agree that R+B can process your payment for such Commitment and such payment will be non-refundable.
If a sufficient amount of Commitments are not placed within the listing period, then your Commitment will be deemed terminated and you will have no further obligations to purchase such animal.
3. Payment and Billing Information
By providing a credit card or other payment method that R+B accepts, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you authorize R+B (or our third party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of your Commitment (including any applicable taxes and other charges). If you pay with a credit card, R+B may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account to verify that the credit card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your Commitment (including any applicable taxes and other charges). If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your Commitment may be suspended or cancelled.
4. Processing and Delivery
Once a Committed Animal has been purchased, the cattle producer will deliver such animal to a custom meat processing facility (the “Processor”) chosen by R+B. Such Processor will be certified by the United States Department of Agriculture (the “UDSA”). Processing of the Committed Animal will take between _________ weeks. Once the Committed Animal is processed, your portion of the processed beef (the “Processed Beef”) will be shipped directly from the Processor to you. R+B will send you email notification when the Processed Beef is shipped.
You are responsible for inspecting all Processed Beef and other products (collectively, the “Products”) you receive for any damage or other issues upon delivery. Processed Beef should feel cool to the touch and it will maintain its quality even if the dry ice has evaporated in the insulated cooler. Refreeze or store the meat in the refrigerator. Following delivery of the Products, R+B shall have no liability for the condition and consumption of the Products.
5. Taxes and Pricing
All prices are shown in U.S. dollars and applicable taxes and other charges, if any, are additional. R+B, at its sole discretion, may make promotional offers with different pricing to any User. These promotional offers, unless made to you, will not apply to your offer or these Terms.
6. Shipping and Handling
You agree to pay any shipping and handling charges shown on the Shipping Rate Sheet at the time you place a Commitment. For the applicable shipping rates can be found on the current Shipping Rate Sheet, click here. R+B reserve the right to amend the Shipping Rate Sheet at any time. You agree that you will not obtain, or direct shipment of, a Product for export. All Products purchased from us are made pursuant to a shipment contract.
7. Returns and Refunds
Processed Beef is a perishable product; therefore R+B cannot accept returns of Processed Beef following shipment.
Prior to placing a Commitment, it is your responsibility to ensure that the mailing address you have provided is accurate. R+B cannot guarantee the condition of the Processed Beef upon delivery if the address is incorrectly entered or if a change of address isn’t updated prior to placement of a Commitment. R+B will not be liable and you will not be refunded for any damaged or spoiled Processed Beef if you alter the deliver address while in transit or if you are unable to retrieve the order on the guaranteed delivery date and did not notify R+B immediately upon notice of the shipment confirmation.
If you enter the shipping address incorrectly when the Commitment is placed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org immediately for correction. Should your shipping address change after the placement of a Commitment, please update your address immediately by writing to email@example.com.
In the event of damage caused by improper handling or late delivery on behalf of the carrier, we are happy to file a claim and replace the shipment. We ask that you please email firstname.lastname@example.org within seven (7) days of receipt, provide a description of the damage, and a photo(s) of the order in the state it was received. Claim filing is time sensitive and photos are required in order to show proof of damage.
In the event of damage or shipping errors on behalf of the Processor, R+B asks that you please email email@example.com within seven (7) days of receipt, provide a description of the damage, and a photo(s) of the order in the state it was received. We will happily review you your order and any reported issues and offer an appropriate resolution which may include credit towards your next purchase or a partial/full refund.

14. Policy Regarding Termination Of Users Who Repeatedly Infringe The Copyright Or Other Intellectual Property Rights Of Others.
R+B and all of its affiliated companies respect the intellectual property of others, and we ask our Users and content partners to do the same. The unauthorized posting, reproduction, copying, distribution, modification, public display or public performance of copyrighted works constitutes infringement of the copyright owner’s rights.

We reserve the right to take these actions at any time, in our sole discretion, with or without notice, and without any liability to the User who is terminated or to the User whose access is blocked.
15. R+B’s Liability.
R+B.com acts as a venue for cattle producers to market and sell cattle directly to consumers and does not screen or censor the listings. R+B is not involved in the actual transaction of posting information by the cattle producers or consumers. As a result, R+B has no control over User Content, the quality, safety, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of cattle producers to offer cattle for sale or the ability of consumers to make purchases through R+B.com and R+B makes no representations about any cattle, related products or User Content on R+B.com. R+B may take any action with respect to User Content that it deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion if it believes that such User Content could create liability for R+B, damage R+B’s brand or public image, or cause R+B to lose (in whole or in part) the services of its ISPs or other suppliers. While R+B reserves the right in its sole discretion to remove User Content, cattle listings or other material from R+B.com from time to time, R+B does not assume any obligation to do so and disclaims any liability for failing to take any such action.
In addition, note that there are risks, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm, of dealing with strangers, underage persons or people acting under false pretenses. You assume all risks associated with dealing with other Users with whom you come in contact through R+B.com and/or the other R+B Sites. By its very nature, other people’s information may be offensive, harmful or inaccurate, and in some cases will be mislabeled or deceptively labeled. We expect that you will use caution and common sense when using R+B.com and/or the other R+B Sites.
Because User authentication on the Internet is difficult, R+B cannot and does not confirm that each User is who they claim to be. Because we do not and cannot control the behavior of participants on any R+B Site, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more Users, you release R+B (and our agents and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential and direct and indirect) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
