Health Requirements for the Autobahn Youth Tour

The following is a summary of the Autobahn Youth Tour animal health regulations for animals entering the show grounds. In some instances these regulations exceed current Texas Animal Health Commission regulations that govern the movement of cattle into shows. Exhibitors with cattle originating outside of the state of Texas are encouraged to contact their state Animal Health officials to confirm specific requirements, if any; their state may impose on animals returning from a Texas show. For further clarification or information, contact the Autobahn Youth Scholarship Tour (817) 336-0885 ext.130 or the Texas Animal Health Commission (512) 719-0777 or (800) 550-8242, P.O.
