(1) Prior to a change of ownership, movement, transfer, or sale of alternative livestock within Montana, the animals must meet all testing requirements mandated by the state veterinarian under ARM Title 32, chapter 3, subchapters 4 and 6.

(2) The department may waive change of ownership and transportation testing requirements of alternative livestock consigned for sale as shooters and/or slaughter on the immediate alternative livestock farm premises, or consigned to an out-of-state destination with the following conditions:

(a) The waiver from testing does not exempt any requirement for necropsy or post mortem inspection that may be determined to be necessary by the state veterinarian.

(b) No animal consigned to an out-of-state destination may be diverted to an in-state destination if it has not met the test requirements of this rule and without the approval of the department.
