Litter can NOT be hauled  in Mississippi. This quarantine is in place due an outbreak of the disease ‘ILT’ in February apparently traced back to an Alabama origin according to the Board of Animal Health.

There may be a change in the next day or so.

When allowed, permits are required for all movements in other areas of Mississippi. NO LITTER may be moved between Mississippi and Alabama. When reopened, ANY MOVEMENT within Mississippi will require a permit from the Board of Animal Health. The basic info required for movement permits are:

  • hauler contact information
  • poultry grower contact information + name of integrator
  • destination contact information

Detailed information on requesting a permit is available from the Board at 601-359-1170 or 888-646-8731.

The situation is under constant review.
