Laws, Regulations, Liability, Insurance, Government Programs

Missouri is not a free range state, so "all livestock must be enclosed within a pasture and have adequate shelter within those enclosures. Livestock owners must fence in or restrain their animals on their own land. Failure to fence in or restrain animals can lead to owner liability for the damages caused by wandering animals."
