I will be transporting my new cow and calf from Indiana to Oklahoma. The vet that will be doing the vet check before I purchase said a certain vaccine wasn't necessary in Indiana (TB, I think).

Anyway, where do I go to find out if I will need ear tags or can just do tatoos
pertaining to my state?

Thanks for the help in direction.

There isn't a vaccine for TB. Maybe she said your animal didn't need a Bang's vaccine (Brucellosis)? It has to be given between 4 months of age and 12 months to a heifer and they put a tattoo in the ear when given. Additionally, a blood sample has to be taken and tested for Brucellosis before transportation, but these things do vary from state to state.

And here is where you can find the regulations for Oklahoma: http://www.ag.ok.gov/ais/import.htm

On Monday, give them a call. I've always found everyone to be super helpful.

These things can seem overwhelming when you're first starting out, so hang in there. Ha, I thought a heifer was a breed like a Holstein or Hereford.

Also, on page 319 in my book, I go through all the different lingo on ear tags and what they all mean.

BTW, I saw where you have a nice bull. My cow is open so as soon as I get her I have to figure this out.
