  2.  The license application shall be established by rules adopted by the state department of agriculture.

  3.  The state, under conditions specified by rule, may request copies of labels and labeling at any time from a license applicant or licensee in order to determine compliance with the provisions of sections 266.152 to 266.220.

  4.  The state may refuse to issue a license to any person not in compliance with the provisions of sections 266.152 to 266.220.  The department may suspend or revoke any license issued to any person found not to be in compliance with any provision of sections 266.152 to 266.220.  The director of the department of agriculture may place conditions that limit production or distribution of a particular commercial feed on the license of any person not found to be in compliance with sections 266.152 to 266.220.  No license shall be conditionalized, suspended, refused or revoked unless the applicant or licensee shall first be given an opportunity to be heard before the director or a hearing officer designated by the director in order to comply with the requirements of sections 266.152 to 266.220.

  5.  The state, under conditions specified by rule, may require independent consultants formulating consultant-formula feeds to furnish signed copies of their formulations and specifications along with directions for use and appropriate warning statements to the manufacturer and end user of the product.  Consultant recommendations found to be inadequate are subject to all the penalties as described in section 266.210.
