Movement Rules: Swine
Moving Within Wisconsin to Any Market Where All Swine on the Market Premises
the Day of the Sale are Shipped Directly to Slaughter
Commercial swine moving within Wisconsin to any market where all swine on the market premises the day of the sale are shipped directly to slaughter have the following requirements:
- Testing for Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) and Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv), is not required for swine to go to the market for slaughter sales (where all swine on the premises the day of the sale move from the market directly to slaughter, and no swine are added to the market that are not going to slaughter while the untested swine are present).
- To avoid the need for testing, these animals must arrive at the market when there are no other swine at the market other than swine going to slaughter, and leave the market prior to the arrival of any other non-slaughter destined swine.
- Slaughter swine from herds that have tested negative for PRRS and PEDv within 90 days prior to movement or are moving in accordance with an approved herd plan may arrive at the market prior to the slaughter sale day. In these cases:
- Markets must verify test results and record that results were checked.
- Markets are encouraged to collect and keep test results to document they have been checked.
- If test results are positive, markets must check that there is a current herd plan and record the herd plan number. The herd plan expiration date and herd plan number are in the upper right hand corner of the first page of the herd plan.
- Other swine that may arrive at the market for other sale days may not arrive at the market until all slaughter swine have left the premises.
- No health or testing documents are required except as noted above.
