1. A resolution was adopted on April 2, 1949, by the Hardin County Agricultural Society to provide an insurance fund for protection of sheep, cattle, hogs, rabbits and goats entered for show and sale at the Hardin County Fair.
2. It is further provided that this fund shall be kept separate from all other funds and shall be used to pay losses from sickness, accident or fire at the rate of 80 percent of appraised value. In the case of dead animals, the Insurance Fund will pay 80 percent of the Sale Average Price without Champions. In the case of sickness or accidents, animals will be taken only on order of the Superintendents or Veterinarians. Payment for these animals will be 80 percent of the difference between Sale Average Price without Champions minus the market price the day of the Sale. Stock on which claims are paid shall pay Insurance Fund as if sold.
3. It is further provided that in case the losses are greater than the amount held in said Insurance Fund, then said Fund shall be prorated and paid on claims at whatever percent allowable and the Hardin County Agricultural Society be no further liable.
