National Animal Identification Plan approaches

A national animal identification plan is being developed to help protect American animal agriculture. State animal health officials, livestock industry groups and the federal government are working together to finalize the plan. They hope to have Phase One of the plan, Premises ID, in place by July 2004. This phase would require that standardized premises identification numbers be established for all production operations, markets, assembly points, exhibitions and processing plants.
