Animal Health & Welfare

Animal health officials work to prevent and eradicate disease in swine, cattle, bison, poultry, horses, deer, elk, and other animals in Illinois. They regulate livestock auction markets and dealers, animal transportation and slaughter livestock buyers. Officials operate state laboratories to provide analytical support for disease eradication programs. The Bureau is located in the Illinois Department of Agriculture at the State Fairgrounds in Springfield, Illinois.
