AUSTIN -- The Texas Animal Health Commission is currently accepting public comments until Sunday, March 18, on proposed amendments to Chapter 51, titled “Entry Requirements.” The Commission is specifically amending Section 51.3 to clarify and modify interstate entry requirements for sheep, goats, and swine.

The purpose of the proposed amendments is to make Texas’ entry requirements more consistent with current national interstate movement standards.

The first amendment will waive the prior requirement for an entry permit and certificate of veterinary inspection (CVI) for swine consigned directly to slaughter, or consigned to a specifically approved livestock market from their farm of origin.

The proposed changes would also no longer require an entry permit for sheep and goats consigned from U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) sanctioned “Consistent States,” which means they have an active scrapie surveillance and control program.

The Commission is also removing a requirement related to vesicular stomatitis. The Commission has determined that other states’ quarantine and movement restriction safeguards are adequate to ensure exposed animals are not moving, without requiring the written statement. The Texas requirement prohibiting entry of certain livestock from a premises or area under quarantine for vesicular stomatitis will be left in place to protect Texas livestock.

The Commission is removing the requirement that swine imported into Texas for feeding, breeding, or exhibition purposes must be accompanied by a certificate of veterinary inspection certifying that swine have not been exposed to hog cholera, which is now called Classical Swine Fever (CSF). CSF has been eradicated from the United States for several years, so this requirement is no longer necessary.

A detailed description of the proposed rules can be found on the Texas Animal Health Commission website at http://www.tahc.state.tx.us under “rule proposals.”
