BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF SOUTH DAKOTA:
Section 1. That chapter 40-20 be amended by adding thereto a NEW SECTION to read as
If livestock owned by and bearing the registered brand of a bona fide rodeo producer are being
transported out of the livestock ownership inspection area by the owner for rodeo purposes and there
is no change of ownership, the inspection certificate required by § 40-20-4 may be endorsed, as to
the purpose and extent of transportation, by the inspector issuing the certificate in order to serve as
a travel permit for the livestock described in the certificate. The endorsement is effective for the
calendar year for which it is issued. The endorsement shall be issued by an authorized livestock
inspector of the Brand Board. The Brand Board shall promulgate rules pursuant to chapter 1-26 to
specify criteria to be used to identify and verify ownership of the livestock. The rules shall include
a requirement that other means of permanent, individual identification of the livestock, including
tattoos, number brands, or photographs, be provided in addition to the registered brand. The rules
shall also establish an annual fee for issuance of the endorsement authorized in this section and
provide for collection of the fee. The fee may not exceed one hundred dollars per year.
