(1) state-federal approved laboratories or by qualified regulatory veterinarians employed by the state or federal government; or
(2) livestock markets by approved licensed, Category II accredited veterinarians or personnel under their supervision.

(b) Grade Cattle tested for brucellosis shall be identified by breed, sex, approximate age, and either:
(1) an official numbered eartag; in the right ear or
(2) a legible tattoo number; or another form of identification approved under 345 IAC 1-2.6-3.

(e) All blood tested at approved auction markets and stockyard laboratories shall be sent immediately to the animal disease diagnostic laboratory at Purdue University for confirmation.

(f) Chain numbers are not acceptable for identification.

(g) Control and use of all brucellosis testing antigens shall be administered by the board. The board shall limit its use only to approved brucellosis testing laboratories and persons authorized to perform the tests.

(h) Calves shall be vaccinated only by a licensed, Category II accredited veterinarian with an approved reduced dose vaccine, while between one hundred twenty (120) days and two hundred ninety-nine (299) days of age.

(i) It shall be unlawful for the owner to present any bovine for calfhood vaccination, or for the veterinarian to perform such calfhood vaccination, on any bovine that is not within the approved age span for calfhood vaccination as specified in subsection (h).

(j) The animals so vaccinated shall be identified by
(1) an official calfhood vaccination eartag affixed in the right ear; or
(2) a legible tattoo number or registration number.
Female multiple offsprings of ova transplants of the same dam must be individually identified at the time of vaccination. and such animals animal shall be further identified in the right ear by tattooing the quarter number, indicating the quarter of the year, followed by the U.S. Registered Shield followed by a number corresponding with the last digit of the year in which the vaccination was done, for example, May 1996 (2V6), or, if RB51 vaccine is used, by tattooing an "R" followed by the U.S. Registered Shield followed by a number corresponding with the last digit of the year in which the vaccination was done, for example, R345140057PRA01.jpg6.

(k) The veterinarian who administers the vaccine shall submit to the board within ten (10) days an accurate and detailed report of such vaccination on a form prescribed by the board for such purpose.

(l) An animal will be treated as a vaccinate only if it shows a legible vaccination tattoo. Official vaccination tattoos may be applied to both ears. The following identification practices will result in the animal being treated as a nonvaccinate:
(1) Retattooing of vaccinated animals.
(2) Retagging of calfhood vaccinated animals with an official calfhood vaccination tag. However, calfhood vaccinated animals may be retagged with an official pass tag when the vaccination tag is lost.
(3) Multiple vaccination tattoos in a single ear.
(4) Tattooing of an animal that obviously does not correspond with the age of the animal.

(o) An officially brucellosis vaccinated animal, which is younger than twenty (20) months of age for dairy breeds and twenty-four (24) months of age for beef breeds shall be tested when deemed advisable by the brucellosis epidemiologist.

(p) With whole herd vaccination, animals older than the age of official vaccination can be vaccinated under specific conditions with a reduced dose of vaccine. All eligible calves shall be vaccinated and identified. (This plan is to be exercised only if and when the board approves the use of reduced dosage of Brucella vaccine in adult herds, in which case the current recommended uniform methods and rules will be used as the guideline.)

(q) Persons or firms engaged in the manufacture, sale, or distribution of Brucella abortus vaccine or any preparation made from or through the agency of Brucella microorganisms shall sell or distribute such products only to duly licensed, Category II accredited veterinarians.
