(2) A list of the types of all charges which will or could be imposed on consignors and a description of all rules of the sale including breed registration requirements must be given to consignors at or before the time of consignment;

(3) If the sale is to be conducted by a management firm which will have access to the custodial account or otherwise handle proceeds of the sale the association or test station sponsoring the sale must require the management firm to secure a bond, in an amount set by the board, conditioned upon the prompt payment of sale proceeds to consignors to the sale.  The bond must be obtained from a firm licensed to issue such bonds in Montana.  The bond must be registered with the board;
