    I think I have a general idea on how it works. I know you have the state vet come out, draw blood etc. I saw they also have a class held twice a year. Has anyone attended the class? How much did the vet visit cost? I live 4 hrs away from Clemson....wonder how much that would be. Any other thoughts, opinions or concerns about the process I should know about? Can you "fail"? Thanks !!!!![​IMG][​IMG]

    Might be the easiest state ever to get tested for Pullorum. Just call Julie. A tester will appear.

    In NC, they just charge 10 cents a bird, $5 minimum. I think you don't pass if you test positive, but I think that's rare.

    Thanks wade. Was there a class or seminar you had to attend as well? Do they look for anything specific when doing an inspection?

    It just doesn't seem like it should be that easy. I won't complain though! Thanks
