I will be transporting my new cow and calf from Indiana to Oklahoma. The vet that will be doing the vet check before I purchase said a certain vaccine wasn't necessary in Indiana (TB, I think).

Anyway, where do I go to find out if I will need ear tags or can just do tatoos
pertaining to my state?

Thanks for the help in direction.

BTW, I saw where you have a nice bull. My cow is open so as soon as I get her I have to figure this out.

Also, on page 319 in my book, I go through all the different lingo on ear tags and what they all mean.

There isn't a vaccine for TB. Maybe she said your animal didn't need a Bang's vaccine (Brucellosis)? It has to be given between 4 months of age and 12 months to a heifer and they put a tattoo in the ear when given. Additionally, a blood sample has to be taken and tested for Brucellosis before transportation, but these things do vary from state to state.

This might be helpful:

And here is where you can find the regulations for Oklahoma:

On Monday, give them a call. I've always found everyone to be super helpful.

These things can seem overwhelming when you're first starting out, so hang in there. Ha, I thought a heifer was a breed like a Holstein or Hereford.
