My vet is coming out Monday to get four of my girls ready for transport to Montana.

4 TB tests (she has to come back Wed. to check the injection sites)
1 Bang's (Sophie hasn't had hers yet)
4 CVIs (Certificate of Veterinary Inspection)
5 blood draws (three 3ml red top vials for each cow) so WSU can confirm they're free of Q-fever, BVD, BLV, and Johnne's. Plus, one extra 3 ml red top on M'Lady so I can confirm she's pregnant.

After all that checks out, I'll call for four brand inspections (a woman drives up from Lewiston for that) and then I'll call Montana for four import permits.
