records relating to his pigs, or believes that the particulars
of the pigs submitted by a Member to the association are or are
likely to be for any reason inaccurate, or is dissatisfied with
the management of a Memberís herd, they may refuse either
absolutely or for a limited period that is considered proper to
register in the Herd Book the pigs of any such Member. The
Association may at any time delete from the Herd Book any entry

registered or eligible for registration in the Associationís

actually been registered in the Herd Book. This rule applies to
any form of sale, whether by Private Treaty or by Auction, and
