The hose port must be fitted with a tight cover. The truck approach to the milkroom must be easily accessible and must be graded and surfaced to prevent mud, collection of manure, and pooling of water. A slab of concrete or other impervious material not less than four feet by six feet must be centrally located adjacent to and below the outside hose port opening. The hose port area must be kept clean and free of litter. The truck approach at new permitted facilities may not be through a yard, walkway, or holding area where cattle can congregate.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>Source:</b> SL 1975, ch 16, &nbsp;1; 7 SDR 125, effective July 9, 1981; 12 SDR 128, 12 SDR 154, effective July 1, 1986; 19 SDR 61, effective October 26, 1992; 25 SDR 85, effective December 20, 1998.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>General Authority:</b> SDCL <A HREF="/statutes/DisplayStatute.aspx?Type=Statute&Statute=40-32-18">40-32-18(5).</A></p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>Law Implemented:</b> SDCL <A HREF="/statutes/DisplayStatute.aspx?Type=Statute&Statute=40-32-18">40-32-18(5).</A></p> </div> </body> </html>
