Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

Every livestock dealer, packer or packer buyer applying for a license under this chapter shall file with the animal industry board and maintain a fully executed duplicate of a valid and effective bond in the form and amount to be determined by the board. If the livestock dealer, packer, or packer buyer is registered and bonded under the provisions of an act of Congress cited as the "Packers and Stockyards Act, 1921," adopted August 15, 1921, as amended to January 1, 2002, and codified at 7 U.S.C. Chapter 9, the livestock dealer, packer, or packer buyer shall file a statement in the form prescribed by the board evidencing that the livestock dealer, packer, or packer buyer is maintaining a valid and effective bond or its equivalent under said act. If a packer buyer is in full-time employ of a packer bonded under this section, the packer buyer need not be bonded. The bond shall be for the benefit of all persons sustaining a loss which may be covered by the obligation of the bond. The obligee of the bond shall be the Animal Industry Board with the executive secretary of the board as trustee, with full power and authority to consider claims and pay valid claims from bond proceeds subject to applicable federal law. The Animal Industry Board may promulgate rules, pursuant to chapter 1-26, to establish procedures for the consideration, processing, and payment of claims from bond proceeds in accordance with this section. Any livestock dealer, packer, or packer buyer in violation of this section is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.
