BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF SOUTH DAKOTA:
Section 1. That § 40-20-26 be amended to read as follows:

livestock ownership inspection area to allow any livestock brought into the yards of the market
for purpose of sale to leave the yards until first inspected for ownership. However, if a shipment
of livestock arrives at any auction market in the ownership inspection area after daylight hours,
facilities shall be made available to yard such livestock separate and apart from any other
livestock. The auction market may sell such livestock that night, but livestock so sold shall be
returned to the separate yard facilities, and may not be removed therefrom until an ownership
inspection has been made. The livestock ownership inspector may
, in his discretion,
the livestock before they leave the yards of the auction market. Livestock that are brought into
a livestock auction market located within the livestock ownership inspection area from a
location outside the livestock ownership inspection area need not be inspected for ownership.
