Animal Health Licenses
Animal Health Division licensing includes mainly areas that were delegated from Executive (Dangerous Wild Animals, Deer Farms, Hunting Preserves), or shifted to Animal Health responsibility with a November 2019 reorganization that relocated licensing previously in Agriculture Business Development (formerly Marketing Division’s livestock dealer, livestock market, and weighman licensing). Annual apiary registration was likewise relocated from Division of Plant Industry. Historically, Swine garbage feeding has been handled by Animal Health Division. We continue efforts to make licensing, permitting, and registration more user friendly by working towards online methods and hope in future to allow online payment methods. Meat and Poultry Inspection was also rolled into Animal Health Division with the reorganization and these licenses can be found at a separate location.
