47-633a. Same; condemnation of herd; payment for animals condemned; appraisal animals. The animal health commissioner may order the condemnation of an entire herd of domestic animals when tuberculosis of any animal within such herd has been diagnosed. In such event, the animal health commissioner shall indemnify the owner of such herd in an amount not to exceed 50% of the difference between the salvage value and the appraised value of the animals in the condemned herd. Such payment by the commissioner shall be from funds appropriated therefor, but in no event shall such payment exceed the sum of $400 per head for registered bovine animals, the sum of $200 per head for grade bovine animals. Such compensation shall not be paid, and the premises from which the herd was taken shall not be restocked, until such premises have been cleaned and disinfected and have been inspected and approved by the animal health commissioner, or the commissioner's authorized representative. Appraisals of animals condemned shall be made by the animal health commissioner, or the commissioner's authorized representative, and by the owner. If such appraisers cannot agree, a disinterested third party, who has knowledge of livestock values in such locality, shall be selected as an arbitrator by the commissioner and the owner, at the expense of the owner. The determination of values by such arbitrator shall be final.
