Ruling on Selling Sacrificial Animals that have Specific Characteristics and Appointing a Person or a Company to do the Slaughtering

Some malls and butchers sell sacrificial animals before Eid ul Adha for a specific price and with specific characteristics in terms of weight and type of meat, but without specifying a particular animal. On the day of Eid, the person on whose behalf the sacrificial animal was slaughtered goes to collect it from the slaughterhouse. Is this sacrifice valid or not? On the other hand, when can the person who had appointed a charity to offer the sacrificial animal on his behalf get his hair cut and nails pared as he doesn`t know when the animal was slaughtered?

Ruling on Incinerating Human Tissue Waste

Remains of waste tissues after surgical operations and natural deliveries must be disposed of because they are a  danger to public health. These are usually placed into biohazard containers and sent to hospital`s medical waste incinerator. They are treated with a maximum caution and got rid of by thorough burn. In addition, miscarried human fetuses are handed to their families to be buried properly. Are these procedures valid from the perspective of Sharia?
