Have questions regarding national animal identification and animal disease traceability issues? Here's one more chance to get an answer.
Later this month, the U.S. Animal Health Association and National Institute for Animal Agriculture will hold a joint forum on animal identification and disease traceability.
Presented in Denver, this forum will allow stakeholders in the livestock industry to discuss and provide input to USDA’s Proposed Rule for Animal Disease Traceability.
During the forum’s closing session on Aug. 31, John Maday, managing editor of Drovers, a sister publication of Pork magazine, will serve as a panel facilitator. He will present questions to a panel of state animal-health officials and others with the goal of identifying key issues and consensus points to carry forward as industry provides input on future USDA policies.
If you cannot attend but have questions you would like to see addressed during the forum, please send them to Maday at jmaday@Drovers.com. He will present as many of the questions as time allows, and summarize the answers in a future postings on Porkmag.com and Drovers.com
