NE Code § 52-701 (2014) What's This?

52-701. Lien; perfection; financing statement; filing; enforcement; fee.

Whenever any person procures, contracts with, or hires any person licensed to practice veterinary medicine and surgery to treat, relieve, or in any way take care of any kind of livestock, such veterinarian shall have a first, paramount, and prior lien upon such livestock so treated for the contract price agreed upon or, in case no price has been agreed upon, for the reasonable value of the services and any medicines or biologics furnished. A lien created under this section shall be treated in all respects as an agricultural lien as provided in article 9, Uniform Commercial Code, and may be enforced in the manner and form provided for the enforcement of secured transactions as provided in article 9, Uniform Commercial Code. A lien created under this section shall be perfected as provided in article 9, Uniform Commercial Code. Any financing statement filed to perfect such lien shall be filed within ninety days after the furnishing of the services and any medicines or biologics and shall contain or have attached thereto (1) the name and address and the social security number or federal tax identification number of the veterinarian claiming the lien, (2) the name and address and the social security number or federal tax identification number, if known, of the person to whom the services and medicines or biologics were furnished, (3) a correct description of the livestock to be charged with the lien, and (4) the amount of the services and any medicines or biologics furnished. The failure to include the social security number or federal tax identification number shall not render any filing unperfected. At the time the lien is filed, the lienholder shall send a copy to the person to whom the services and medicines or biologics were furnished. The fee for filing, amending, or releasing such lien shall be the same as set forth in section 9-525, Uniform Commercial Code. Effective January 1, 2015, this section applies to a lien created under this section regardless of when the lien was created.
