Livestock License Renewals Due June 30

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. - Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain said Wednesday that all alternative livestock producers must apply or renew their 2012-2013 licenses by June 30.

"Alternative livestock is a viable and growing agricultural business, but we must ensure that our domestic deer are protected," Strain said. "Part of the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry's (LDAF) function is to make sure that alternative livestock in the state are healthy and well-cared for. We anticipate no problems with this program because alternative livestock producers take great care of their animals."

Alternative livestock are defined as any imported exotic deer and imported exotic antelope, elk and farm-raised white-tailed deer.

A hunt pen requires a minimum of 300 acres. Hunting is allowed during the regular deer season of Oct. 1-Jan. 31, 2013.

Harvest tags are required and can be purchased through the LDAF. A harvest pen license is required.

Currently, the LDAF licenses 260 breeder pens and 70 hunt pens throughout the state.

Strain said applications and regulations are available by calling the Office of Animal Health at 225-925-3980.
