SERVING NEW MEXICO SINCE 1887   LOG IN TO NMLB
 

 
WELCOME TO THE NMLB HOME PAGE

As part of the oldest law enforcement agency in the State of New Mexico, the men and women of the New Mexico Livestock Board serve and protect an industry that has been operating in the western territory of what is now the United States for over 400 years. Though New Mexico did not become a state until 1912, our agency was formed in 1887 as the Cattle Sanitary Board. The Sheep Sanitary Board formed two years later. The two organizations merged in 1967, becoming the New Mexico Livestock Board which continues today as an agency of the State of New Mexico.

Our mission is to protect the integrity of New Mexico's livestock industry. Our team of about sixty full time inspectors and another sixty full and part time deputies continuously patrol and perform inspections around our state to help keep our livestock free from disease and safe from theft. We are also the office of the State Veterinarian, whose team collaborates with various government and private sector partners to ensure that our state remains free of diseases.
