Commuter Herd Agreements
A commuter herd agreement may simplify the requirements for interstate movement of swine in commercial production systems. A commuter herd agreement is a written agreement among the owner(s) of a herd and the animal health officials for the states-of-origin and destination specifying the conditions required for the interstate movement from one premises to another in the course of normal livestock management operations. A commuter herd agreement may be renewed annually. Requirements to establish a commuter herd agreement include a detailed, written Swine Production Health Plan; herd health inspections every 30 days by an accredited veterinarian; and notification to the accredited veterinarian in charge and the sending and receiving states prior to each interstate movement of swine between premises within a swine production system. If interested in learning more about the requirements for a commuter herd agreement, please contact BOAH's Swine Health Programs Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or (317) 607-7071.
