Movement Rules: Swine Moving Within Wisconsin Generally (see below for exceptions)

Commercial swine moving within Wisconsin generally must have the following:

  • Testing for Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Virus (PRRS) and Swine Enteric Coronavirus Disease (SECD) is required as follows:

    • Negative tests of herd of origin within 90 days prior to movement – no restrictions on movement.  Documentation of the negative test results must be made available upon request.

    • Positive tests for either PRRS or SECD of herd of origin within 90 days prior to movement - the herd will be quarantined until a herd plan is established and approved.  Movement can take place in accordance with the herd plan.

    • If no test for either PRRS or SECD has been done within 90 days prior to movement, the animals are not allowed to move except to slaughter, to a market at which all swine on the premises on the day of the sale are going directly to slaughter, or terminal fairs/exhibitions/shows.

  • No movement documentation such as a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (health certificate or CVI) is required (except if moving to a fair/exhibition/show as noted in that section).

  • Official identification is not required.

  • See main swine movement page for other specific movements.
