About Us

​​​​​​​​​​The Oregon Department of Agriculture’s (ODA) Animal Health Program, under the direction of the Oregon State Veterinarian, is responsible for protecting the health of Oregon livestock. This responsibility is carried out through four primary statutory responsibilities – Livestock Disease Control and Response, Animal Disease Traceability (ADT), Animal Emergency Planning and Response, and providing veterinary oversight to the State Meat Inspection Program. Three additional programs with similar missions – Animal Health Laboratory, Commercial Feed Licensing, and Animal Rescue Entity Licensing – also exist within the Animal Health Program.​
