Swine rules relax state entry permits
AUSTIN -- The Texas Animal Health Commissionhas passed a rule that will allow swine consigned directly from out-of-state premises with “Validated Brucellosis Free” and “Qualified Pseudorabies Free” status to enter specifically approved Texas livestock markets without a certificate of veterinary inspection and an entry permit.
According to a June 27 Texas Animal Health Commission press release, the commission states that since the swine are from brucellosis- and pseudorabies-free herds, they will not need to be tested for those diseases prior to change of ownership at the Texas market. This rule is intended to facilitate interstate movement and acknowledges the increased marketing value of swine herds that have attained brucellosis- and pseudorabies-free status.
