Livestock Scale Inspection

Livestock Inspection

The Consumer Services program is responsible for the annual inspection and testing of commercial Livestock Scales used in the state of New Mexico. The Livestock Scale Inspection program is by request basis only. Livestock Scale Inspection Requests are accepted annually during the months of January through March and are inspected between April 1 and December 31 of the current year. *Fees will be assessed to scale inspection requests received after the deadline date.*

In order to improve our efficiency, the New Mexico Department of Agriculture Standards and Consumer Services Division (SCS) will be launching a NEW Routine Livestock Scale Inspection Program in 2019. The program will apply to livestock scale owners who consistently request SCS’s annual livestock inspection service. Click here for more information on our 2019 program and it’s requirements.
