New requirements for shipping non-commercial hogs from Kansas to Texas

Updated:

NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE KANSAS DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY

TOPEKA, Kan. – The Kansas Department of Agriculture’s (KDA) Division of Animal Health is advising swine producers to be aware of a new requirement to ship hogs into Texas. Dr. Bill Brown Kansas Animal Health Commissioner has received information from the Texas Animal Health Commission State Veterinarian regarding new policies and procedures when transporting hogs into Texas.

According to the announcement, effective Friday, February 7, 2014, a certificate of veterinary inspection accompanying non-commercial hogs entering Texas for purposes other than immediate slaughter, must contain the following statement from the issuing veterinarian, "To the best of my knowledge, swine represented on this certificate have not originated from a premises known to be affected by Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus (PEDv), and have not been exposed to PEDv within the last 30 days."

Dr. Brown was supportive of the decision. “PEDv is of real concern to the swine industry, and it is important that as many preventative measures as possible be taken,” Brown said. Swine producers, particularly those raising animals for the youth show market should visit with their local veterinarian about steps to insure that this disease does not spread further and impact their farm businesses.

It is noted that these requirements do not apply to the commercial shipment of hogs intended for immediate slaughter in Texas.
