For our out-of-state exhibitors:
You may want to remind your veterinarian that dairy goats are considered breeding animals and legible tattoos with accompanying registration papers are considered a nationally acceptable form of identification . Breeding animals are not required to have scrapie ear tags. Your scrapie premise ID number and Wyoming import number should also be on the health certificate. Your vet can get the import number by calling the Wyoming State Veterinarian at  307-777-7571.
If you don’t have a scrapie premise ID number:
Call 1-866-USDA-TAG (866-873-2824) to be connected to your USDA Veterinary Services Office or State Office Veterinarian and request that a premises identification number and Flock ID be assigned.
