USDA Moves to Make Animal ID More Cost Efficient.


U.S. Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack announced a change of direction for animal disease traceability in the U.S. The new framework will apply only to animals moved in interstate commerce. States and tribal nations will administer the program to provide more flexibility. Lower-cost animal identification technology will be encouraged.

cattle Animal ID Systems Changes in the program are based on input gathered during last year's listening tour featuring stops at 15 locations. Vilsack said following these meetings, it was apparent a new strategy was needed.

"I've decided to revise the prior policy and offer a new approach to animal disease traceability with changes that respond directly to the feedback we heard," said Vilsack.

One of USDA’s fiY-Tex RFID Tag - Animal ID Systemsrst steps will be to convene a forum of state and tribal nation animal health leaders. The meeting will be used to initiate dialogue that leads to a flexible, coordinated approach to animal traceability for disease purposes. USDA also will reportedly address limiting animal owner liability and maintaining producer confidentiality.

USDA is moving forward.

EU Lamb EID tagging Now Mandatory

New European Union rules for sheep farmers have come into force meaning all newborn lambs will have to be electronically tagged.

It is hoped the move will allow animals to be traced more easily.

Rural Affairs Minister Elin Jones said concessions secured from Europe should make it easier for Welsh farmers to implement the new regulations.

However, NFU Cymru said it will not necessarily mean that all newborn lambs born in 2010 will have to be tagged.

Ms Jones said: "The concessions we have secured from Europe should make it much easier for Welsh farmers to implement the EU regulations around sheep tagging.

"As of today sheep farmers will need to consider which slaughter tags they use to identify their 2010 lambs.

Nine million

"My officials will be issuing guidance and a revised flock record to all registered sheep and goat farmers in early January to help them through the new process.

"I would also urge farmers to seek advice from my officials on this issue as they will be able to provide detailed information on all aspects of the regulation."

Welsh Assembly Government officials will be advising farmers on this issue at a number of road shows across Wales during January.

There are nine million sheep in Wales and nearly half of Welsh farms keep the animals.
