Ohio Livestock Care Board Sets Penalties

Ohio Livestock Care Board Sets Penalties

Penalties based on major and minor violations.

The Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board has passed proposed civil penalty rules that will be used to enforce the state’s livestock care standards. The rules provide guidance for major and minor livestock care standard violations, and the civil penalties apply to each set of livestock care standards the board creates. Ohio Department of Agriculture Director Robert Boggs says the proposed civil penalty rules will strengthen every livestock care standard this board creates.

The proposed civil penalties for each livestock care standard will be based on major and minor violations. A major violation may result in a civil penalty of $1,000-$5,000 for a first offense and $5,000-$10,000 for each subsequent offense. A minor violation may result in a civil penalty of up to $500 for a first offense and up to $1,000 for each subsequent offense.

The Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board is charged with establishing statewide standards governing the care and well-being of livestock while promoting food safety, preventing animal and human diseases and encouraging local food production.
