We inspect and enforce laws pertaining to feed, seed, fertilizer and agricultural lime as well as conducting yearly BSE Inspections at feed manufacturing facilities.

We issue permits to seed dealers and processors.

Agricultural Compliance is responsible Stockyards and Brands.  Here we are charged with the care of the Livestock Market Charter Application process; the registration and licensing/permitting of bonded livestock markets, livestock dealers, issuing livestock hauler trailer tags and livestock brands.

We also issue Certificates of Free Sale to Alabama companies in order for them to ship their products around the world.
