Grazing permits.

(1) Washington herd owners desiring to move cattle interstate for grazing purposes and return to Washington shall request a permit for such movement from the animal health program of the department. The state to which the animals are to be moved for grazing must approve the movement. A separate permit must be obtained from the animal health program for the return of such cattle.
(2) Grazing permits will be issued only for movements to states that are class free or A for brucellosis and that share common borders with the state of Washington.
(3) Cattle moving interstate on grazing permits are generally exempt from interstate health certificate and testing requirements unless required by the state veterinarian in either state due to changing disease conditions.
(4) Cattle moving interstate on grazing permits must meet the brand or animal identification requirements of each state before interstate movement.
