Artificial Insemination

Title 25, Chapter 8, Idaho Code, Artificial Insemination of Domestic Animals--License to Practice and IDAPA 02.04.03, Rules Governing Animal Industry Section 150, require a license, issued by the Idaho State Department of Agriculture (ISDA), to practice artificial insemination of domestic animals within the state of Idaho. In order to obtain a license, an applicant must complete and submit an artificial insemination application,* have it notarized as required, enclose a copy of Certificate of Training, with a $25.00 initial license fee, and pass a written test with a grade of 75%.

Annual renewal fees are $5.00 due on or before the 1st day of July of each year. Any license not renewed by the 1st day of October shall be cancelled. Reinstatement fee is $25.

Arrangements can be made to take the Idaho artificial insemination exam at a local County Agent's Office. Three hours should be allowed to take the test.

The penalty for practicing artificial insemination without a license is a violation of Idaho Code and may result in administrative action by ISDA.
