Effective July 3, 2014, there is a temporary restriction on animals from San Patricio and Nueces counties in TX due to the outbreak of vesicular stomatitis.  Russia has prohibited the US export of horses or other single-hoofed ungulates, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs and semen and embryos of the above species, from those counties in TX.

Effective September 5, 2012, Russia has banned US export of horses, cattle, sheep, swine and semen and embryos from donors in Mora Country, NM.

Effective July 17, 2014, all exports of hatching eggs to the Russian Federation must be pre-notified by APHIS.  Ask your APHIS VS service center to send scanned copies of the endorsed veterinary health certificates to notification-us@fsvps.ru from an e-mail account that ends in “@aphis.usda.gov.”  This information must be sent on-line to the e-mail address above before the shipment arrives in Russia.  Starting on July 17, 2014, shipments arriving at Russian Federation entry points without the electronic pre-notification by APHIS will be returned, by Russia, to the sender.

Sheep and Goats

Swine

Effective 5/30/14, Russia has banned import of live pigs from the United States due to the detection of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PED).
