SECTION 105.120 ILLINOIS EXHIBITION SWINE
Section 105.120 Illinois Exhibition Swine
Illinois exhibition swine of any age must meet the following requirements:
a) Be accompanied by a health certificate issued within 90 days prior to exhibition and individually identified by an official ear tag, tattoo or recognized ear notch. Ear notch identification is acceptable for barrows, crossbred gilts and breeding swine.
b) The official health certificate shall:
1) Be issued by an accredited veterinarian of the state of origin or a veterinarian in the employ of the United States Department of Agriculture;
2) Show that the exhibition swine are free from visible evidence of any contagious, infectious or communicable disease or exposure to those diseases;
3) Show that the exhibition swine are not from a quarantined herd and/or area; and
4) Show that the swine are negative to an official test for pseudorabies conducted within the 90 days prior to exhibition; or that the swine originated from a qualified pseudorabies negative herd and the qualified pseudorabies negative herd number and date of last qualification test is listed on the health certificate.
c) Illinois swine exhibited in Stage I or Stage II states or out-of-state shows allowing Stage I or II state pigs to exhibit returning to Illinois must be isolated and retested negative to an official test for pseudorabies 21-60 days after returning to Illinois before being able to be exhibited in Illinois or return to the herd of origin.
d) Swine consigned to terminal market classes must meet the same test requirements as exhibition swine if these classes are held "exhibits not intended for slaughter". When terminal classes are held on a day when no other livestock are present, these animals are exempt from all test requirements and do not need a health certificate. All swine in terminal classes must be identified by a site tattoo. Swine from pseudorabies quarantined herds are not allowed to exhibit regardless of whether the show is terminal or non-terminal.
