Inspection and transportation of hides
(1)It is unlawful for any person, firm, corporation, railroad company, or other common carrier to transport or cause to be transported within this state or beyond the limits of this state any hides that have not been inspected and tagged by a duly authorized brand inspector of the state board of stock inspection commissioners for the district in which such hides are shipped. A certificate of inspection as provided for in section 35-53-102 shall accompany all shipments and shall be exhibited by the carrier or his or her agent at any time upon demand of any inspector or peace officer. For each hide thus inspected there shall be paid by the owner or holder thereof a fee in the amount prescribed by the board, pursuant to section 35-41-104, to the inspector before he or she issues the hide inspection certificate authorizing the transportation of such hides.
(2)Each inspector of hides shall keep a complete record of all inspections made by such inspector and shall forward to the state board of stock inspection commissioners, together with the fee collected, on blanks furnished for that purpose, a complete report of each inspection, giving the names of the purchasers and shippers of the hides, as well as all of the brands thereon. Said report and fee so collected shall be reported and transmitted to said board at such time and in such manner as the board shall by regulation require, and said report shall be preserved by the brand commissioner as part of the records of such commissioner’s office. This section shall not apply to slaughter plants or packinghouses where all cattle are inspected immediately prior to slaughter by a duly authorized brand inspector of the state board of stock inspection commissioners.
