    Hi all. I might be moving in a couple of months and need to know what I need to move my goats across state lines. These are just pet goats- not a commercial venture.Will I need to stop at the AG Inpsection points with my goats? Will I need health certificates? Thanks :)

    If it's not noticable because they're in the back of your bronco, or station wagon, and your only crossing one state line. I'd just go, do it all the time. However when showing I go to the vets, and she inspects them and give's them a health paper declaring their destination, this costs around $25 plus $1 or $2 per head. And you should stop at ag inspection points vet should be able to tell you where, if You're crossing several states, you'ld better get the papers! :yeeha:

    Thanks :) I'm moving across two states from Florida through Alabama to Tennessee. They'll be in a livestock trailer so it will be noticable.
