(a) In the event a designated small non-registered producer sells the farm on which he resides and raises or keeps laying hens, including the buildings and equipment used by him for raising or keeping laying hens located on such farm, the Board may, upon written application of such designated small non-registered producer (herein called the "Applicant") and the purchaser of such farm, cancel the designation of the Applicant, designate such purchaser as a designated small non-registered producer, and establish such purchaser's verified number of laying hens in a number equal to the Applicant's verified number of laying hens.
