may be shipped or transported interstate for immediate slaughter
provided they have been inspected by a bureau inspector and found
free from the disease or exposure thereto and are accompanied by

Paragraph 4. Sheep of the quarantined area in those States with

subsequent test have been found apparently free from tuberculosis,
except in cases where the reacting cattle are permitted to be moved
interstate subject to the conditions and requirements prescribed in
Sections 3, 4, or 6 of this regulation.
Paragraph 2. The physical examination, tuberculin test, health
certificate, and tuberculin-test chart required by paragraph 1 of

six months prior to the interstate movement of such cattle: Pro-
vided further, That when the cattle are destined to a. State which
