Swine Movement for Licensed Markets - Non-Federally-Approved Market (Non-Slaughter)

Movement Rules: Swine Imported to Non-Federally Approved Market Where Any Swine at the Market May be Sold for Purposes Other Than Slaughter

Commercial swine entering Wisconsin to a non-federally approved market where any swine at the market may be sold for purposes other than slaughter must have the following:

  • Certificate of veterinary inspection (CVI) with the following information:
    • Complete physical origin address 
    • Complete physical destination address
    • Inspection date within 30 days of import
    • Official identification (one of the following):
      • USDA ear tag number – number must begin with a state 2-digit code followed by 2 or 3 letters and 4 numbers
      • USDA “840” ear tag number
      • Ear notch (if the pig is a purebred and the ear notch is registered)
      • A tattoo or an ear tag with the premises identification number and a unique identifier (a tag without the premises ID number is not sufficient)
      • A microchip for swine kept as pets
      • Breed association tattoo
      • Feeder swine:
        • If the animals are 80 pounds or less, individual ID is not required but the premises identification number or state-issued code of the premises of origin must be on the animals (ear tag or tattoo)
        • If the animals are more than 80 pounds, each animal must have an official individual ID as noted above
    • Testing for Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) and Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv), as follows:
      • Negative tests of herd of origin within 90 days prior to import. For both PRRS and PEDv, the test type, date, and results must be included on CVI.
    • Statement on the CVI that there are no clinical signs of PRRS and PEDv at the time of inspection
    • Veterinarian’s signature

Swine may not be imported to a non-federally approved market without meeting these requirements unless all swine on the market premises the day of the sale are shipped directly to slaughter. (No non-slaughter swine may be on the market premises while untested slaughter swine are on the market premises.)

Markets are required to collect and keep copies of CVIs and turn away producers who do not have complete CVIs.
