The board shall supply each certified feedlot with appropriate movement certificates in triplicate. One copy of each certificate shall accompany the slaughter animals to the packing facility, one copy shall be retained by the certified feedlot, and one copy shall be sent to the board together with the appropriate fees. The feedlot shall retain copies of the direct-to-slaughter certificates in a separate file, in numeric order, for audit purposes.


All certified feedlots shall notify the local brand inspector of all anticipated shipments going directly to slaughter, giving the inspector ample notice to inspect or audit the shipment at his or her discretion during daylight hours.


Any certified feedlot that has animals inspected immediately prior to shipment to slaughter and an inspection certificate issued by an authorized Colorado inspector shall be charged the applicable per-head fees, Colorado beef board fees, and national beef promotion fees. The certified feedlot per-head fee will not be charged in addition to the inspection fee. One copy of the inspection certificate shall be filed with feedlot copies of the slaughter movement certificates. The feedlot shall be responsible for the inspection fee, which shall be payable at the time of inspection on all animals inspected.
