Have you heard about InterstateLivestock.com?
The NIAA and USAHA have partnered together to create a website, www.InterstateLivestock.com, which provides current rules and regulations for anyone shipping cattle across state lines.
The one-stop resource for finding requirements to move animals across state lines! The site is in its first phase featuring cattle movement regulations for all 50 states, and designed to provide quick results.
Best of all, it’s free! Anyone involved in cattle movements can easily prepare to meet the necessary requirements. No more reading through regulations or waiting until normal business hours to call the state – the information is available 24/7 at your fingertips.
Some common applications include-
- Livestock Markets
- Seed stock sales
- Cattle buyers
- Exhibitions and Fairs
- Private treaty
The mobile and desktop friendly site provides you with a simple Q&A process to narrow down your requirements for your specific situation. The site also provides an interactive, map based tagging site finder to help get your stock properly identified when entering commerce.
The site is developed as a partnership of the United States Animal Health Association and the National Institute for Animal Agriculture, through which the information gap was identified. This solution was developed through a collaborative effort of states, USDA, members of both organizations and Trace First. Please check it out -> www.interstatelivestock.com
