The rate is based off of distance. Each state will have a dot website through the motor vehicle department.

What about Brand and health papers? Could I find those through State websites or through USDA?

The brand division has their own website I believe and you have to have health papers for basically anything that gets on your trailer from the home area of where the animal originates from and on those paper it will have a destination. The brand stuff should state which states are brand areas. They should be all out west tho.

I would have the owners of the animals do the leg work. But generally if they are being sold you just need to call the state vets office of the state that the animals are destined for and and they should be able to tell you what you need. You can probably google _____ state vets office for a number. If you are delivering to multiple states you probably have to do it for each one. You should not have to have anything for states that you just driving thru. If you are hauling to shows the shows should tell you what is required. I would imagine most states will require a health certificate and some will require specific tests depending on where the cattle are coming from. Anyway thats my $.02

Hauled livestock over the road for many years,  just to answer a few questions asked,  yes you need health papers,  brand papers out west and yes you must stop at all ports of enrty / weigh stations. As far as rates go they can either go by the mile or by weight. Every time I've loaded out west the brand inspector is right on the ranch watching as we sort and loaded.
