C.R.S. Section 35-55-104


No license or renewal of license to establish a public livestock market within the state of Colorado may be issued until the applicant has filed evidence of a savings account, deposit, or certificate of deposit meeting the requirements of section 11-35-101, C.R.S., or executed and delivered to this state a surety bond approved and accepted by the state board of stock inspection commissioners upon a form prescribed by the state board. The bond shall be in a penal sum of not less than twenty-five thousand dollars, the amount to be determined by the state board based upon the dollar volume of the business, and shall be issued by a surety company approved by the state board of stock inspection commissioners. Said bond shall be conditioned upon the prompt payment to the rightful owner, upon sale of the livestock so consigned and delivered to the licensee for sale, of all moneys received, less reasonable expenses and agreed commissions chargeable by the licensee and operator of the public livestock market, and also upon full compliance with all of the terms and requirements of this article. When so approved, said bond shall be filed with the state board.


Actions at law may be brought in the name of the state board of stock inspection commissioners upon any such bond, for the use and benefit of any person, firm, or corporation who may suffer loss or damage from violations thereof, but the aggregate liability of the surety for all such losses or damages shall, in no event, exceed the sum of said bond.


Any such public livestock market which is registered under the provisions of the federal “Packers and Stockyards Act, 1921”, as amended, and has executed a bond as provided for therein and as is required by the rules and regulations prescribed by the secretary of agriculture, is not required to execute the bond provided for in this article if such bond also guarantees payment of all brand and sanitary inspection fees due this state. Copies of any such license and bond certified by the executive officer of such board may be procured upon payment of a fee of one dollar each, and shall be received as competent evidence in any court in this state.
