Quarantine; Noxious Weeds

(1) Establishing Quarantine. A quarantine is established against the noxious weeds listed herein. Noxious weeds have been declared a menace to the public welfare (ORS 569.180 and 569.350) because of the environmental degradation that occurs when they become established.

(2) Areas Under Quarantine. The entire state of Oregon and all other States of the United States and all foreign countries.

(3) Covered Plants. For purposes of this rule the term “plants” applies to whole plants, plant parts, and seeds. This rule applies to all “A” and “B” state designated noxious weeds listed herein, except as provided in section (6). Plants on the Federal Noxious Weed List (7 C.F.R. 360.200) are also covered by this rule, with the exception of Japanese blood grass, Imperata cylindrica, var. Red Baron and Chinese water spinach, Ipomoea aquatica.

(4) “A” weeds

(a) “A” designated weeds. Weeds of known economic importance which occur in the state in small enough infestations to make exclusion, eradication, or containment possible; or which are not known to occur, but their presence in neighboring states makes future occurrence in Oregon seem imminent.

(b) “A” weeds are controlled through exclusion, early detection, and rapid response (EDRR). Control of “A” weeds is a high priority for ODA and the primary goal is to prevent introduction and permanent establishment of “A” weeds. If “A” weeds are introduced, and eradication is not feasible, the secondary goal is to implement control measures to contain the “A” weeds to as small an area as possible so as to prevent widespread occurrence in Oregon.

(c) When “A” weeds are detected, control actions are mandatory and the goal of such control is eradication. Any person owning or occupying property upon which “A” weeds are detected must contact the Oregon Department of Agriculture within 48 hours of detection.

(d) Upon detection of “A” weeds, ODA may develop a survey, eradication, and monitoring plan to control or eradicate detected weeds. ODA may either develop and conduct appropriate measures to control or eradicate such weeds or may enter into a contract for the purpose of controlling or eradicating “A” weeds.

(e) Control or eradication of “A” weeds may be implemented at no cost to a person owning or controlling land within this state upon which “A” weeds are detected. However, ODA may request any person owning or controlling land within this state to control, prevent the spread of, or eradicate where feasible “A” weeds, subject to supervision of such activities by the ODA.

(f) If ODA or a county are unable to control or eradicate “A” weeds on private property, any person owning or controlling land within this state must control and take measures to eliminate or prevent the possibility of spread of “A” weeds to other lands and ownerships. Control measures for “A” weeds must be implemented in a timely manner as determined by ODA. Treatments must provide sufficient levels of control to make progress toward the goal of eradication.

(g) ODA inspectors may access all lands within Oregon for the purpose of ORS 569.175 to 569.195 including carrying out the control or eradication of “A” weeds.

(h) Any person owning or controlling land within this state found in violation of ORS 569.175 to 569.195 or these rules may be subject to fines up to the maximum for Class B violations.

Control of “B” weeds may vary according to ODA-established priorities as well as site-specific or case-by-case factors. When available, biological control may be the primary long-term control strategy.

(b) The goal of “B” weed management is control and prevention of new infestations of “B” weeds in Oregon. ODA may advise persons owning or controlling lands upon which “B” weeds are detected on the control of “B” weeds on those lands as well as how to prevent “B” weeds from infesting new lands. As determined by ODA or a county, “B” weeds may be controlled or eradicated in the same manner as “A” weeds when “B” weeds appear in parts of the state where they were not previously detected or established.

(c) Pursuant to ODA’s determination as to treatment of “B” weeds, ODA may develop a regional control plan or cooperate with a county, local entity, or persons owning or controlling private lands to develop and implement a plan to control “B” weeds. ODA may assist with implementing control measures.

(d) Persons owning or controlling lands where “B” weeds are detected may request assistance from their respective local County Weed Inspector.

(e) Cost-share assistance grants may be available for the control of State listed noxious weeds to any person owning or occupying land upon which “A” or “B” weeds are detected. If within a county weed control district or special weed control district the county may provide assistance by applying for cost-share assistance grants. Information on cost-share assistance grants may be found at ODA’s Plant Division website.

(f) As determined by ODA, biological control agents may be available for some “B” weeds.

Adm. Order No.: DOA 18-2011

Filed with Sec. of State: 10-4-2011

Certified to be Effective: 10-4-11

Notice Publication Date: 8-1-2011

Rules Amended: 603-056-0145

Subject: Oregon’s Sod Quality Seed certification program is used as a tool for marketing premium Oregon grass seed. Annually more than 110,000 tags are issued to certify that grass seed meets Oregon sod quality seed standards. However, in February 2011 a change was made to the “All States Noxious Weed List” which now allows Downy Brome — Bromus tectorum, as a restricted weed seed in Oregon Sod Quality seed lots. The allowance of this contaminate diminishes the value of Oregon Sod Quality certification, as such, the Oregon Seed Trade and Oregon Seed Council has requested a change in rule to prohibit Downy Brome.

Rules Coordinator: Sue Gooch—(503) 986-4583


Standards for Sod Quality Certification

(1) The seed lots submitted shall meet all standards for certification by Oregon State University.

(2) The seed standards for “Oregon Sod Quality Seed” of hard fescue, sheep fescue, blue fescue, Kentucky bluegrass, red fescue, chewings fescue, perennial ryegrass, bentgrass and tall fescue shall be as set out in Table 1.

(3) “Noxious Weed” and “Crop and Weed” analyses shall be based on a 20 gram sample for hard fescue, sheep fescue and blue fescue, 25 gram sample for Kentucky bluegrass (except a 10 gram Poa annua search), 30 gram sample for red fescue and chewings fescue, 50 gram sample for ryegrass and tall fescue, and a 2-1/2 gram sample for bentgrass. Testing shall be discontinued when results of the tests exceed the maximum limits set forth in Table 1.

Rule Caption: Amends brucellosis testing and importing requirements for cattle.

Adm. Order No.: DOA 21-2011

Filed with Sec. of State: 10-14-2011

Certified to be Effective: 10-14-11

Notice Publication Date: 8-1-2011

Rules Amended: 603-011-0270

Subject: The Oregon Department of Agriculture, Animal Health Division has the responsibility to protect the livestock of this state from disease. Brucellosis is a highly contagious disease spread by direct contact. The domestic livestock in the United States are currently considered free from brucellosis infection. These amendments will update and clarify the rule and bring it into alignment with national guidelines.

Rules Coordinator: Sue Gooch—(503) 986-4583


Importation of Cattle: Brucellosis Testing and Vaccination Requirements

(1) Definitions: As used in this rule:

(a) “Eligible Cattle” means all sexually intact cattle over 18 months of age, including pregnant heifers or those that have calved under 18 months of age;

(b) “Non-vaccinated” means all sexually intact female cattle over four months of age not vaccinated for brucellosis;

(c) “Vaccinated” means all female cattle vaccinated for brucellosis;

(d) “Designated Area” means an area, herd or herds described by USDA and/or the State Animal Health Official/State Veterinarian of the state-of-origin as containing cattle potentially infected with or exposed to brucellosis and thereby subject to movement restrictions and/or additional brucellosis testing;

(e) “Registered Dry Feedlot” means an area, approved and registered by the Department, surrounded by a cattle-tight fence in which livestock are confined and wherein they must be supplied both feed and water for their survival, but does not mean any pasture or corral wherein livestock are only fed occasionally or as a supplement to natural forage growing in the pasture or corral;

(2)(a) In addition to the permit requirements for importation of livestock into Oregon, official vaccination for brucellosis (either calfhood or mature) is required for the importation of all female cattle over four months of age for any purpose other than directly to slaughter or to be fed in a registered dry feedlot or a licensed terminal feedlot (not pasture) and then sent directly to slaughter from that facility. Evidence of such vaccination shall be by an official tattoo in the right ear of the animal.

(b) All eligible cattle not originating in a Designated Area are specifically exempt from brucellosis testing before entry into the State of Oregon; or

(c) All eligible cattle not originating in a Designated Area may enter Oregon directly to a licensed slaughtering establishment or to an approved state-federal market and then to a licensed slaughter plant if the identity to the out-of-state herd of origin is maintained.

(d) All sexually intact cattle over 4 months not originating from a Designated Area and consigned to an approved state-federal market which, upon sale, are to go to ranches/farms in Oregon for breeding and/or dairy purposes, must be vaccinated for brucellosis. Evidence of such vaccination is an official tattoo and/or official vaccination tag in the right ear of the animal. The cost of vaccination at the market, if required, shall be the responsibility of the buyer.

(e) All sexually intact cattle originating in a Designated Area may be imported on a case-by-case basis as determined by the State Veterinarian, based on an assessment of risk to the cattle of the state. The cattle must be officially and individually identified. The official identification, identity to the out-of-state herd of origin and its physical location must be maintained.

(3) Registered Dry Feedlot: Cattle may be imported into the State of Oregon, consigned to a registered dry feedlot subject to the following conditions:

(a) Cattle may be of any age, vaccinated or not vaccinated, but may not originate from a Designated Area without specific permission from the State Veterinarian before entry;

(b) On movement from registered dry feedlots, non-vaccinated cattle may move to slaughter or to another registered feedlot only. There are no restrictions on steers and spayed heifers, vaccinated heifers under 18 months old or eligible vaccinated cattle.

(c) No illegally imported cattle are permitted entry to registered dry feed lots. Records of cattle entering and leaving feedlot shall be available to Departmental personnel at all reasonable times.
