Farm Share Owner shall hold Helios Farms harmless and shall indemnify Helios Farms from any and all losses, costs, claims, damages, actions, causes of action, demands or liabilities including reasonable attorney’s fees, arising in any way whatsoever out of this certification.
10. No Sales of Dairy Products, Meat, or Eggs.
Helios Farms and Farm Share Owner acknowledge that the sale of dairy products, meat, or eggs may, at any time, be prohibited by the State of Oregon. Under no circumstances shall either Helios Farms or Farm Share Owner transfer the Farm Share Ownership or possession of any meat and/or egg production from the Livestock Shares in any transaction that would constitute a sale of dairy products, meat, or eggs in violation of the statutes of the State of Oregon. Helios Farms and Farm Share Owner each agrees to indemnify and hold the other harmless for any liability, loss, damage, expense or penalties which are incurred by the other because of a breach of the provisions of this Section by the indemnifying party.

A Farm Share Owner cannot buy from himself what he already owns.

boarding and care of the animals, feeds, supplies, and other services.
12. Farm Share Ownership; Transfer.

Farm Share Owner shall not transfer or assign any rights or interests in the Livestock without the prior written consent of Helios Farms, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, and without the transferee or assignee having entered into a Livestock Boarding Agreement covering the interest being transferred or assigned prior to or contemporaneously with the transfer or assignment. Farm Share Owner may not transfer or assign milk, meats, or eggs, only shares in live animals.
D. Helios Farms shall at no time and under no circumstance sell or exchange any of Helios Farms’ share of production and shall at all times use the Helios Farms’ share of production for Helios Farms’ own use.
E. Because all of the Livestock Agreements are interdependent and cannot function without all interests in the Livestock being covered by them, notwithstanding the foregoing, if any court orders a transfer or assignment of an interest in a proper cause of action, the Court is requested to make the transfer or assignment subject to the terms of a Bill of Sale and Livestock Boarding Agreement with respect to the transfer or assignment being ordered by the Court.
A. Farm Share Owner shall not be liable to Helios Farms for any loss of or damage to the Livestock or for anything resulting from the care and maintenance of the Livestock by Helios Farms or from handling of production from the Livestock.

B. This Agreement shall continue until terminated by either party pursuant to subsection 17.A below.
