163.43  Health certificate required.

No licensee shall lease as lessor, and no person shall lease as lessee, a breeding bull within this state unless such breeding bull is accompanied by a health certificate signed by a licensed veterinarian and showing:

1.  That the breeding bull has been tested by a licensed veterinarian within sixty days prior to rental and found to be free from Bang's disease,* and tuberculosis.

2.  That, to the best of the knowledge and belief of the examining licensed veterinarian, the breeding bull is apparently free from any infectious, contagious or communicable disease.

3.  The identification number of the breeding bull tested and the date of issuance of the health certificate.

Such health certificate shall be valid for one rental on one premise only. Thereafter, a new health certificate must be issued after the breeding bull has been retested; but no new test for tuberculosis shall be required if the breeding bull is leased within sixty days of the last tuberculosis test.

One copy of the health certificate shall be filed with the department within fourteen days after its issuance; and one copy shall be issued to the lessee when the breeding bull is delivered to the lessee. A licensee shall show the health certificate of any breeding bull upon the request of any person designated by the department to enforce the provisions of this division. The licensee shall also, within ten days after the lease of each breeding bull, notify the department in writing of the name and address of the person to whom the breeding bull is being leased, together with the date of delivery.

For the purposes of this section, a breeding bull is leased within this state if it is leased to an Iowa resident.
