Elk Farms and Elk Hunting Parks

The Utah Legislature joined many other states in 1997 by passing the Domesticated Elk Act and thereby creating a domestic elk industry in the state. Listed below are sources that offer comprehensive information about elk farming in Utah. For further information, contact Leslie McFarlane, Domestic Elk Manager, at (801) 538-7173.

GENERAL INFORMATION

IMPORTATION INTO UTAH

The consignor must first complete the Utah Domesticated Cervidae Import Application and forward to the governing agency in the consignor’s state or province.  The governing agency is responsible for validation of all information and compiling the necessary herd records and then returning the application to the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food Division of Animal Industries for consideration.  The consignor should move forward with the required testing only after the herd has been approved for import.

All testing documents and a preliminary copy of the Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI) must be submitted to the UDAF Division of Animal Industries for review.  An import permit will be issued to an accredited veterinarian once approved.  If you have questions regarding the import procedure or requirements, please email Dr. Dustin Durfee ddurfee@utah.gov or contact by phone (801) 538-4910.
