Animal Disease Traceability Meetings Set by APHIS for This Month

Sun, 02 May 2010 20:50:47 CDT

Animal Disease Traceability Meetings Set by APHIS for This Month The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) will hold three public meetings on the animal disease traceability framework approach. The meetings will take place in May in Missouri, Maryland and Colorado.


On Feb. 5, USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that USDA will develop a new, flexible, yet coordinated framework for animal disease traceability in the U.S. Under this new direction, states and tribal nations must establish the ability to trace, animals moving interstate back to their state of origin.


USDA has scheduled three public meetings to discuss animal disease traceability with livestock industry representatives and members of the public to gather feedback on appropriate approaches under the new framework.


The public meetings will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. local time, with registration starting one hour prior to each meeting. The meetings will be held in the following locations: May 11 in Kansas City, Mo.; May 13 in Riverdale, Md., and May 17 in Denver, Colo.


A Federal Register notice about the meetings will be forthcoming to officially announce the meetings. Additional meetings will be scheduled in the coming weeks.
