Need a licensed hauler?
John Shipley & Son Farm, LLC
The landowner will pay the hauler directly. The owner may then request cost share assistance from BCCDKY.
Have you had an animal death in the past 24 hours? Act fast.
What to do:
Within 24 hours of an animal death, call a licensed hauler. Make sure you provide the following information:
- directions to your farm,
- method of payment (cash or check),
- type of animal to be picked up (some have restrictions),
- approximate time of death,
- location of the animal on the farm,
- and a phone number where you can be reached.
Effective July 1, 2010, removal fees start at $75.
*A Cause of Animal Death Statement may be required for the removal of more than three animals at one time. This is necessary to prevent the spread of disease and protect animal health. If you have more than three animals to be removed at one time, please contact your veterinarian before calling your hauler. In case of obvious non-disease causes of animal death (drowning, lightning strikes, etc.), the veterinarian may be able to furnish a verbal report to speed up the process of removal.
Is there a reimbursement program?
Currently this program is on hold due to lack of funds.
*Licensed haulers reserve the right to terminate the program if at any time local, state, or federal regulations are enacted that would prohibit the hauler from dispensing with the animal in the accustomed manner or would adversely affect the day-to-day operations of the hauler.
