(4) The licensee is responsible for moving, confining, and/or restraining livestock as needed to allow for a complete inspection.
(5) The director may exempt certain groups of one-brand or no-brand cattle under the same ownership from the individual identification requirements of this section if the integrity of the inspection process can be maintained.
