    ------------------------------------

    IT WILL BE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF EACH VENDOR TO ABIDE BY STATE OF MAINE LAWS AND REGULATIONS; TO PROVIDE ANY REQUIRED LICENSING, ADEQUATE SHELTER, CAGING, WATER AND FOOD FOR THEIR ANIMALS; & TO CLEAN UP THEIR AREAS WHEN LEAVING.

    Maine State Laws governing the sale of poultry/waterfowl & goats

    Maine State Law:

    MAINE RULES AND REGS ON SALES OF LIVESTOCK, POULTRY, WATERFOWL, MILK, CHEESE

    http://www.maine.gov/agriculture/ahi/ahisr.html

    5A.All sheep & goats (no matter the age or whether castrated or not) must be tagged if they are up for sale at any event. All sheep/goat being sold from a farm need to have a tag, whether being sold in state or out of state. Castrated sheep/goat must also be tagged. The farmer is required to keep records for 5 years. A small yellow book is usually provided with the tag shipment for recording of the tag number, date sold, etc.

    5B. birds do not need to be in the NPIP Program. Its great if your birds are Typhoid & Pollorum tested to keep these diseases out of US.

    The only time you need to have tested birds is at a fair/show.

    The only stipulations are that at public events in Maine you have to sell any birds under 8 weeks old in lots of 6, above the 8 weeks, they can go one at a time. Now, from your house or farm you can sell singular birds of any age.

    You must purchase 6 from the one family the chicks are raised in, not 1 bird here, 1 bird there. (I believe its the pecking order and younger chicks could be harmed)

    NO PROCESSING OR NEUTERING OF ANIMALS

    Mammals must be completely weaned and minimum of 8 weeks old.


    RULES FOR OUT OF STATE VENDORS

    http://www.maine.gov/sos/cec/rules/01/001/001c206.doc

    VENDORS DO NOT NEED A VENDORS LICENSE UNLESS THE VENDOR BUYS LIVESTOCK, POULTRY OR WATERFOWL TO RE-SELL

    Certificate of Veterinary Inspection: A legible certificate signed by an accredited veterinarian and approved by the chief livestock official of the state or country of origin stating that the animals are free from signs of contagious, infectious and communicable diseases and containing the following:

    1. An official identification number, or identification satisfactory to the commissioner, for each animal
    2. Age, sex and breed of each animal
    3. The results of any qualifying test
    4. The exact address of consignor (sender) and consignee (receiver).
    5. The expected date of entry

    NH & out of state residents should have a copy of their NPIP form to show that the flocks of origin for their birds were NPIP certified.

    I think it's great to have a "master" list of maine swaps and then a thread (or more) for the individual swaps. it helps us all out.

    Hoppy, no confirmation yet about Lewiston, TSC swaps yet. I had an email from Kellie that she has not been feeling well and had a tough time last year and was unsure about this year at Lewiston. Kellie did a great job starting the swaps in Maine and has inspired a lot of us to hold future swaps in our area. Of course Tractor Supply stores have been a great host for our swaps.
