Livestock to be imported into Oklahoma must meet certain conditions and test requirements prior to entry. These requirements are to help prevent the possible introduction or transmission of an infectious, or contagious disease, to protect our citizens and livestock industry, and to insure higher profits through safer products and investments for Oklahoma producers.
The import/export section issues import permits and quarantines for livestock that are required to be retested negative for a disease. All health certificates are routed through this sections and checked for completeness and accuracy. Producers and veterinarians are assisted with clarification of requirements to move animals into Oklahoma or another state as well as many foreign countries. To obtain a permit or information on import requirements, please call (405) 522-6141.
