Joint Strategy Forum on Animal Disease Traceability
July 28, 2010 — Harry Snelson
The US Animal Health Association (USAHA) is partnering with the National Institute for Animal Agriculture (NIAA) host a forum on the future of the animal identification effort.
The Forum is being designed to facilitate much-needed interaction between State and Tribal animal health officials, animal producers, livestock marketers and handlers, and meat processors that yields valuable input on preliminary standards which are being developed by USDA's Traceability Regulatory Working Group, expected to be released in mid-August.
The forum will be held August 30 and 31 at the Renaissance Denver Hotel in Denver, CO. Additional information and registration details can be viewed online at http://animalagriculture.org/Solutions/Joint%20Forum/Registration%20Info.html
