Permits & Testing Requirements

Testing and Permit Requirements for Selling Birds

Cages need to have a solid bottom so the bird's toes are not damaged when the cage is moved.

Out of State NPIP Members        Import permit - e-mail lvmarket@ink.org or call 785-564-6700.   Indicate that you are an NPIP member. The KS Dept. of Agriculture will mail the import application to your state for NPIP verification so you can consign birds using a VS Form 9-3.  Out of state sellers must present the import permit  letter  from KAHD before unloading birds.   Anyone consigning any species requiring a Kansas Game Breeders’ Permit must show proof of legal ownership, possession, importation and/or other required documentation from the originating state (game breeders’ permit).  (See list of birds under Kansas below.)    If you have the VS Form 9-3, you do not need a general health paper to consign birds.      

  

Out of State Non-NPIP Members    Import permit  (see import permit information under Out of State NPIP Member. Indicate that you are not an NPIP member.)  You will need a general health paper in triplicate  and the 4-part VS Form 9-2.  All copies must be readable & signed by a certified tester.  Out of state sellers must present the import permit  letter  from KAHD before unloading birds.      Anyone consigning any species requiring a Kansas Game Breeders’ Permit must show proof of legal ownership, possession, importation and/or other required documentation such as game breeders’ permit from the originating state.  (See list of birds under Kansas requirements.)      


Kansas Residents  To sell chickens, guineas, peafowl, pheasants, & quail, you must present  the 4-part NPIP VS Form 9-2 before the birds are unloaded.   A Kansas Game Breeder’s Permit is needed to sell Ringneck Pheasants, Bobwhite Quail, Scaled Quail, game animals, & fur-bearing animals native to Kansas & existing as a wild population.   Chicks under 4 months old must be from an NPIP flock.  Bring the NPIP form for the breeder birds and write the number on the box. There will not be no pullorum-typhoid testing at the fairgrounds.    Call the  Kansas Animal Health Department phone 785-564-6700   for the name of a tester in your area app. 2 weeks before the auction.       According to the information I received from this office, they are waiving this requirement until October 1, 2019, because of the shortage of antigen.

Consignors of Wild Waterfowl

Anyone selling North American waterfowl needs to complete Sale Form3-186.

Consignors  selling wild waterfowl must complete Sale Notice Form 3-186 and turn it to the check-in people at the time the birds are checked in.


Consignors are responsible for picking up their completed forms once the birds are sold.

Animals

A young pony is lead into the arena by its owner.

Testing Requirement for Animals:  K. S.A. Article 10 - Public Livestock Markets - Regulations 47-1001 to 47-1013 require a separate health paper in triplicate for each animal. All Fur-bearing animals including pot-bellied pigs, goats, sheep, ratites, and all birds  must have general health papers. Give health papers to check-in people before animals are unloaded. All tests must be conducted within 30 days of the sale.      


Cattle, Buffalo, Elk, Goats, & Llamas over 6 months old must have a negative TB and Bangs Test.    Deer over  6 months old must have a negative Brucellosis test or have proof of being from an accredited Brucellosis free herd.        


Horse, Mules, & Donkeys must have a negative Coggins Test.         


New scapies regulations require that sexually intact sheep & goats sold for breeding be individually identified with a permanent form of identification.  This can be done with a flock tag  obtained from the premise of origin from the USDA, a USDA  approved tag applied & premise of origin recorded at the sale barn or auction, or a registration tattoo.  As it is impossible to know that sexually intact sheep & goats sold at an auction will be going directly to slaughter, all sexually intact sheep and goats should be identified. Tags are available at the auction.

Housing A Bird With A Long Tail

Mature Peafowl need to be caged so their train or long tail is not damaged.

The consignor constructed a large cage to properly protect  and display this peafowl's long tail and it paid off in the price that was bid for the bird.
