81-8-704. Procurement and use of labels -- information concerning -- disposal of moneys. The department of livestock may make, print, or otherwise prepare a quantity of labels, tags, and seals with the Montana quality label printed, lithographed, inscribed, engraved, or impressed on them, sufficient to supply the demand for them. The department may furnish labels, tags, and seals at reasonable prices to a producer, processor, packer, or dresser who has availed himself of the continuous official inspection service. This part, however, does not preclude the department from permitting, under its rules, a producer, processor, packer, or dresser to make, prepare, or cause to be made or prepared the labels, tags, or seals to be used on his own product or to print, stamp, or otherwise place or cause to be placed the Montana quality label on products or containers which have been subject to continuous inspection, if the labels, tags, seals, stamps, or other devices are of a design which the department prescribes. The department of livestock may, in cooperation with the United States department of agriculture or otherwise, make use of available and appropriate means to disseminate information concerning the Montana quality label and the products which may lawfully bear it and to popularize its use. All moneys derived from furnishing the labels, tags, and seals or from permitting the use of the Montana quality label shall be deposited in the state treasury to the credit of the general fund.
