General Cattle Health Regulations:

A current, completed Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI), listing individual animal official identification (official ear tag or registration tattoo accompanied by the registration certificate) must accompany all animals exhibited. The CVI must be issued within 30 days of entry. CVIs written for animals originating from outside the state of South Dakota must have a telephone import permit number listed on the certificate. Import permits are issued to the veterinarian completing the CVI and can be obtained by calling (605) 773-3321. Cattle originating from outside of the state may be subject to more requirements. Animal health import requirements can be found at http://aib.sd.gov/mainimport.html or call the SD Animal Industry Board at (605) 773-3321.

TRICHOMONIASIS: All non-virgin bulls must be tested negative within 30 days of the sale date. Approved testing methods include:
  • One negative PCR test conducted on a preputial scraping sample.
  • Three consecutive negative culture attempts of preputial scraping samples collected with a minimum of seven days between each collection.

The veterinarian issuing the CVI must certify that the bull has not bred since the start of the test and a copy of the test results must be attached to the CVI. Virgin bulls are exempt from testing. MAKE SURE IT IS STATED ON THE CERTIFICATE IF YOUR BULL(S) IS/ARE VIRGIN. Cattle must be free of any infectious, contagious, or communicable disease at the time of entry onto the Fairgrounds. If warts have been surgically removed, the scars must be healed by the time of exhibition. Semen check is required on all bulls 15 months of age, or older, as breed requires. We must have the DATES OF TESTS AND WHERE THEY WERE TESTED (name of lab and address) listed on CVI.

ALL INFORMATION MUST BE RECORDED ON THE CERTIFICATE OF VETERINARY INSPECTION TO ACCOMPANY THE ANIMALS ENTERED.
