What if I don't have animals anymore at my feedlot or what if I sold my feedlot to someone else?
Contact the Feedlot Office and let them know the date you last had animals. If you sold your animals to someone else, that person will need to fill out a Change of Ownership form. This form is available in the Feedlot Office.
If I don't have animals anymore, will I lose my registration status?
