25-141C.  Sheep — Goats — Scrapie — Or other diseases — Herd depopulation. In order to prevent the introduction or dissemination of scrapie or other contagious, infectious or communicable diseases into or among the sheep or goat population of Idaho, the board is granted authority to identify diseases of concern and to condemn infected herds and to require the destruction or other disposition as approved by the board of such herd or herds. The board is authorized to reimburse the owner by cash payment for any affected or exposed sheep or goats which have been condemned, appraised and slaughtered or destroyed or otherwise disposed of by direction of the board and for property destroyed and for labor employed in digging trenches and for cleaning and disinfecting premises where such infected or exposed sheep and goats have been kept; provided, that the board shall only pay the difference between the appraised price less federal indemnity and salvage value for any sheep or goats condemned and slaughtered or destroyed under this section and the actual costs for burials or disposal of animal carcasses and for cleaning and disinfecting of premises where infected or exposed sheep or goats have been kept. In the event federal indemnity is unavailable in regard to the value of the sheep or goats, the board shall only pay the difference between the appraised price and salvage value. Appraisals shall be performed by a team comprised of an animal health representative, the owner and a person with experience in sheep or goat marketing. A maximum per head value may be established by rules of the board. The board or its designee may grant a hearing to any person, under such rules as the board may prescribe which are in compliance with chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code, when the appraisal price is in dispute. An appeal may be taken from the decision of the board or its designee under the provisions of chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code.
