Due to the severe drought, a number of Texas cattle are currently being moved to other states, according to a Sept. 26 announcement from the Texas Animal Health Commission.

The Commission advised that cattle being shipped from Texas must meet the animal health entry requirements of the receiving state. These entry requirements are mandated by the state of destination, not by the state of origin. Different classes of cattle may be subject to different interstate animal health requirements. It is the owner or shipper’s responsibility to ensure the shipment of cattle has obtained the needed or proper documents, such as a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI) or an entry permit.

It is also the responsibility of the shipper to obtain the services of an accredited veterinarian to complete a CVI (health certificate) for the cattle being shipped interstate.

Violations of interstate animal health requirements by Texas shippers can negatively impact the marketability of Texas cattle.

The Texas Animal Health Commission and accredited veterinarians can assist cattle shippers with interstate cattle movement questions. By working together, this will ensure that Texas cattle continue to be valued by the cattle industries in other states.

For more information, call the Region 5 Texas Animal Health Commission Office, located in Beeville, at 361-358-3234.
