A licensee is required to comply with the requirements of Chapter 163 and Iowa Administrative Rules 21-66.
163.30 Swine imported or native—pig dealers.
1. This section shall apply to all swine moved interstate and intrastate, except swine moved directly to slaughter or to
a livestock market for sale directly to a slaughtering establishment for immediate slaughter.
2. When used in this chapter:
a. “Dealer” means any person who is engaged in the business of buying for resale or selling, or exchanging swine as a
principal or agent or who claims to be so engaged, but does not include the owner or operator of a farm who does not
claim to be so engaged, and who sells or exchanges only those swine which have been kept by the person solely for
feeding or breeding purposes.
3. A person shall act as a dealer unless the department issues the person a dealer’s license. The fee for a dealer’s
license is ten dollars. All licenses shall expire on the first day of the second July following date of issue. Licenses shall
be numbered and the dealer shall retain the same license number. To be issued a license, an applicant must file a
surety bond with the department. The applicant shall file a standard surety bond of ten thousand dollars with the
secretary named as trustee, for the use and benefit of anyone damaged by a violation of this section, except that the
bond shall not be required for dealers who are bonded in the same or greater amount than required pursuant to the
federal Packers and Stockyards Act. In addition, the department may require that a licensee file evidence of financial
responsibility with the department prior to a license being issued or renewed as provided in section 202C.2
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 or
Iowa Code Supplement Chapter 202C.
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 department to the records.
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.
License fees shall accompany application. Make checks or money orders payable to IDALS (Iowa Department of Agriculture & Land Stewardship)
