New Mexico Livestock Board

The New Mexico Livestock Board regulates livestock health and livestock identification in New Mexico, in the United States. It was created in 1967 by the merger of the New Mexico Cattle Sanitary Board and the New Mexico Sheep Sanitary Board. Their regulatory control over livestock now includes cattle, horses, mules, donkeys (burros), goats, sheep, pigs, bison, poultry, ratites (notably ostriches), camelids (notably llamas) and farmed deer (cervidae).[1] The regulatory authority does not include farmed fish, nor dogs or cats.[1]

Livestock identification

The registered brand is the basis for livestock identification in New Mexico. Every three years the Board publishes a Brand Book.
