September marks the beginning of animal/barn inspections.

September marks the beginning of animal/barn inspections. Inspections will focus on animal health and shelter, the food and water situation, and will include a livestock census. Livestock must be properly identified, and the use of ear tags, available free from the state, is suggested.

Contact Sherborn Animal Inspector Kimberly Morrow at 508-561-8552 for questions about barn inspections.

Questions about livestock identification should be directed to the state Department of Agricultural Resources at 617-626-1797.
