Filling a Gap for Livestock Transportation
August 5, 2016 is a 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.

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, and this solution was developed through a collaborative effort of states, USDA, members of both organizations and Trace First, the service provider. The site was officially launched late last fall, and continues to grow.

The groups are now developing the second phase of the site, which will include additional species: equine, swine, sheep and goats. These additional species will make it a truly robust resource to meet regulatory requirements for a broad range of individuals involved in transporting livestock.

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 -
