Livestock Identification

Oregon Revised Statutes chapter 607 defines livestock districts and open range and sets the procedure and requirements for establishing or changing a livestock district. The procedure is handled by the county clerk. When a livestock district is created or changed, written notification is sent to the Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA).
