meaning: “Livestock” means cattle, horses, sheep, goats, swine (other than feeder swine) or any other animals of the bovine,
equine, ovine, caprine or porcine species. “Livestock” also includes all species of deer, elk, and moose raised under
confinement or agricultural conditions for the production of meat, the production of other agricultural products, sport, or

66.1(2) Livestock dealer permit required. Any person engaged in the business of buying, selling, or assembling livestock by
consignment for the purpose of resale either interstate or intrastate, shall first obtain a permit from the department to
conduct business.
21—66.20(163) Revocation or denial of permit. The department may revoke or refuse to issue or renew a livestock dealer
permit, a pig dealer license, or a livestock dealer agent permit or a pig dealer agent permit if the department finds that the
applicant, a person with an ownership interest in the applicant, or an individual employed by the applicant has done any of
the following:
1. Has not filed or maintained a surety bond in the form and amount as required by Iowa Code section 163.30.
2. Has violated the provisions of Iowa Code chapter 163, 163A, 164, 165, 166, 166A, 166B, or 166D or the rules adopted
pursuant to those chapters.
3. Has made false or misleading statements as to the health or physical condition or origin of livestock or feeder pigs, or
practice fraud or misrepresentation in connection with the buying or receiving of livestock or feeder pigs or the selling,
exchanging, soliciting or negotiating the sale of livestock or the weighing of livestock or feeder pigs.
4. Has failed to maintain and keep suitable animal health and movement records as required or to provide access to the

5. Has had a license or permit suspended or revoked or has been otherwise barred from engaging in the buying, selling,
assembling livestock or feeder pigs, or receiving livestock or feeder pigs on consignment by either the USDA or by another
state unless the department concludes after an investigation that the facts leading to the suspension or revocation
demonstrate that granting the license or permit will not create a substantial risk to the Iowa livestock or feeder pig industry.
This paragraph shall also apply if there is a pending action to suspend or revoke a permit.
6. Has failed to comply with any lawful order of the department or a state or federal court.
