Animal Health protects producers and consumers, as well as the health of livestock in Nebraska, by enforcing rules and regulations governing eradication and control of certain livestock and poultry diseases.

Auction markets and livestock dealers are licensed by Animal Health in order to regulate the health requirements of animals moving within the state. The import of animals into the state is also monitored according to established health standards which allow only healthy animals to enter.

Animal Health also licenses and inspects pet feed and rendering plants to ensure that finished products from these plants are safe for livestock and pets.
