HEALTH REQUIREMENTS


Anytime Poultry crosses the state line, there must be documentation of movement. This is for your protection as well as other poultry producers in the case of a disease outbreak. It is also a USDA ADT (Animal Disease Traceability) requirement.
 
NPIP flock owners have an advantage and are able to by-pass having to make a special trip to a veterinarian for a health certificate. You are able to complete, on your own, an NPIP 9-3 Form documenting the movement of poultry out of our state. While this is not required for in-state movement, it is recommended. Several flock owners do it because it’s just easier to keep track of their sales for their own benefit as well. If you do not complete a 9-3 form for in-state movement, you are required to keep records of any poultry that you sell. That could be as easy as having a notebook with a running list of buyer’s names and addresses.
 
NPIP 9-3 forms are available at no charge electronically. Flock Owners should contact [email protected] requesting approval to submit 9-3 forms electronically PRIOR to any out of state shipments. Once approved, Flock Owners must complete a 9-3 for each shipment out of Oklahoma. Each shipment you send or receive from out of state must be accompanied by a 9-3 form. 

 The State Of Oklahoma is accepting NPIP Extensions issues by States with an antigen shortage.
