(225 ILCS 620/16) (from Ch. 111, par. 216)
    Sec. 16. Each licensee hereunder, except persons licensed under the Livestock Auction Market Law as now or hereafter amended, shall file with the Department a bond in the amount of $5,000, with the licensee as principal and a surety company authorized to do business in Illinois as surety, conditioned on the performance by such licensee of all duties required by law of a feeder swine dealer. Such bond shall provide that it may not be cancelled without 30 days written notice of termination to the Department prior to the effective date of such termination.
    Instead of filing a bond, a licensee may deliver to the Department a trust fund agreement showing he has deposited with a bank or trust company either $5,000 in cash or securities endorsed in blank by the owner thereof and having a fair market value of at least $5,000. The form of the trust fund agreement shall be prescribed by the Department. The trust fund agreement shall be subject to the same conditions as would the bond described in this Section. A licensee desiring to terminate a trust fund agreement shall submit to the Director a written request to do so. The trust fund agreement shall terminate within 30 days after the Director's receipt of the request unless the Director notifies the licensee of his objection to the termination. The Director shall object to the termination of the trust fund agreement where the possibility exists that an obligation covered by the agreement might go unsatisfied.
    The Director of Agriculture as trustee of the bond or the trust fund described in this Section shall have the authorities granted him in Section 205-410 of the Department of Agriculture Law (20 ILCS 205/205-410) and the rules adopted pursuant thereto.
