Additional flocks may be check tested at the discretion of the board or the inspector. The state inspector must test the flocks by the rapid whole blood test. If the check test results in bacteriological recovery of any Salmonella pullorum or Salmonella gallinarum organism, the board shall require all flocks where the bacteria are found and any other flocks considered necessary by the board to be satisfactorily retested in accordance with &nbsp;12:68:13:07. The status of such flocks shall be determined by the results of such retests. Any flock found to be infected must be placed under quarantine. The quarantine may be released only if one of the provisions listed in &nbsp;12:68:13:07 is complied with.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>Source:</b> SL 1975, ch 16, &nbsp;1; 12 SDR 128, 12 SDR 154, effective July 1, 1986; 18 SDR 55, effective September 23, 1991.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>General Authority:</b> SDCL <A HREF="/statutes/DisplayStatute.aspx?Type=Statute&Statute=40-3-14">40-3-14.</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=40-3-9">40-3-9</A>, <A HREF="/statutes/DisplayStatute.aspx?Type=Statute&Statute=40-3-10">40-3-10.</A></p> </div> </body> </html>
