Notice to Out of State Consigners: Any dairy cattle entering Missouri from out of state, including steers but excluding animals for slaughter only, are required by the State of Missouri Animal Health Dept to have a negative TB test. If such animals arrive at EMCC without this test, they will be quarantined a week and tested at sellers expense or sold strictly for slaughter only. 



Notice of Breeding Bull Requirements: For a bull to be consider and offered for sale as a breeding bull two conditions must be met. First a valid positive Breeding Soundness Exam (BSE) test must accompany the bull. To be valid it must be completed and dated within 30 days of sale date.  Additionally, bulls over 2 years of age or non-virgin bulls must also provide a Negative Trich test. To be valid it must be completed and dated within 30 days of sale date AND the bull would have to be quarantined away from females until after the sale. Virgin bulls can sell with a signed virgin affidavit. Bulls offered without meeting the breeding bull requirements are slaughter bulls.
