The Texas Animal Health Commission is currently accepting public comments on rule proposals that were authorized during the Jan. 24 commission meeting.

In the proposed amendments to Chapter 35, titled “Brucellosis,” the commission is proposing to remove the brucellosis test requirement for change of ownership of adult sexually intact cattle, and to add a requirement that cattle be permanently and officially identified when there is a change of ownership.

On Aug. 1, 2011, the commission ceased to enforce the requirement for a brucellosis test at change of ownership due to a lack of funds to supplement the cost of testing at livestock markets. The agency is therefore proposing to amend the rule to officially end the test requirement.

Historically, cattle that were tested for brucellosis had permanent official identification (such as ear tags) applied at the same time. This practice was a significant asset to the agency’s ability to successfully track or trace cattle as needed for all disease programs, not just brucellosis. The identification capability was also lost at the time that testing requirements ceased.

The Commission is now proposing to require that all cattle that are parturient or post-parturient or 18 months of age and older, except steers and spayed heifers, changing ownership within Texas shall be officially identified with commission-approved permanent identification.

The last date to comment on this is Tuesday, April 17. A detailed description of the proposed rule can be found on the Texas Animal Heath Commission website at http://www.tahc.state.tx.us under Rule Proposals.

Comments on the proposed regulations must be submitted in writing to Carol Pivonka, Texas Animal Health Commission, 2105 Kramer Lane, Austin, TX 78758, by fax at 512-719-0721, or by email to comments@tahc.state.tx.us.
