Swine Rules Change for Validated and Qualified Herds

Fri, 10 Aug 2012 14:51:11 CDT

Swine Rules Change for Validated and Qualified Herds
The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry announced that hogs from pseudorabies-validated and brucellosis-qualified (VQ) herds may now be sold at Texas livestock markets without additional brucellosis and pseudorabies testing.

The Texas Animal Health Commission passed a rule effective July 1 allowing hogs from VQ herds to enter Texas markets without health certificates or further tests. Swine herds in Oklahoma meeting this standard undergo regular quarterly testing to earn this status and become certified as low-risk for these two diseases.

VQ herd owners are still required to follow all entry requirements; for more information on Texas entry requirements, visit http://www.tahc.state.tx.us/regs/entry.html or call 1-800-550-8242.

For more information on Oklahoma regulations, contact Dr. Justin Roach at 405-522-8396 or justin.roach@ag.ok.gov.
