Oregon Statutes - Chapter 599 - Livestock Auction Markets; Stockyards; Auction Sales - Section 599.269 - Brand inspection required prior to public auction of cattle; minimum fee; application of section; exemptions.

Before any livestock auction market can sell cattle as designated by the State Department of Agriculture, at an auction open to public bidding, or on consignment or commission basis, a brand inspector shall be present to carry out the brand inspection provisions of ORS chapter 604 and this chapter. It is necessary therefor that the department recover at least in part its actual costs of maintaining such inspection and related services. During any 24-hour period if the brand inspection fees that the department is authorized to collect through and in a livestock auction market under ORS chapter 604 do not total $50, the livestock auction market licensee shall include and at the same time pay to the department the difference between the actual brand inspection total fees collected and $50. This section also applies to sales by breed or livestock associations, fairs or other groups, but does not apply to sales by Future Farmer or 4-H groups.
