(a) A person owning or having custody of a bovine animal required to be tested, vaccinated, branded, marked, or appraised by the Department, shall confine and restrain such animal for such testing, vaccinating, branding, marking, or appraising upon reasonable notice from the Department;
(b) It shall be the owner's responsibility to restrain each animal by placing it in a stanchion, holding chute, or by otherwise immobilizing it to permit safe access to the animal by the veteri-narian or authorized representatives of the Department for performance of such duties as may be required by the Department of its representative.
(2) Utilization of blood samples. The Department may utilize any blood samples sent to the state animal health laboratory by an official veterinarian, or other authorized personnel in slaughter houses, for survey purposes, and/or diagnosis of and eradication of any livestock diseases.
(3) In connection with notices, orders or similar documents relating to livestock disease procedures, problems or requirements, which the Department under ORS Chapter 596 is required to mail or give to persons owning or allegedly owning livestock at the farm, ranch or place where the livestock will be, were, or are located, shall constitute a valid or legal notice or order as required under law or regulation. The Department in addition thereto, or in lieu of the above procedures relating to handling of notices or orders, may mail or give such notice, order or document to the person on a ranch, farm or other place, who is in control or possession of livestock. Such notice or order shall constitute a valid and legal notice to the owner or alleged owner of the livestock.
(4) The State Brucellosis Classification, assigned to the State of Oregon by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is dependent upon the effective control and eradication of brucellosis in the state's cattle, swine and goats. In OAR 603-011-0500 to 603-011-0570, the Department has adopted the Uniform Methods and Rules as the minimum standards for maintaining the effective control and eradication of brucellosis in this state, and the Department from time to time will adopt any subsequent changes made to the federal rules. However, should any of the provisions of OAR 603-011-0500 to 603-011-0570 be more restrictive or exacting than the Uniform Methods and Rules, such provisions shall take precedence over the federal rules.
