Oregon Statutes - Chapter 599 - Livestock Auction Markets; Stockyards; Auction Sales - Section 599.295 - Pens for diseased animals.

(1) The licensee shall provide separate pens of suitable size which shall be designated as quarantine pens which shall be floored with concrete or some other impervious material and constructed so as to allow for efficient drainage and cleaning. These pens shall be used for all animals coming into the market zone which are found to be infected with brucellosis or other contagious, infectious or communicable diseases. These pens shall be used only for the detention of diseased animals and shall be constructed and maintained in accordance with the regulations of the State Department of Agriculture.

(2) The fact that an animal is placed in a quarantine pen under subsection (1) of this section does not entitle the owner to be paid indemnity for the animal; but this subsection is not intended to affect the payment of indemnity where the owner is entitled to indemnity payments as otherwise provided by law. [1953 c.677 §10; 1957 c.390 §3]
