The first-ever CattleTrace Industry Symposium will take place November 22 in Manhattan at the Kansas State University Union. It will serve as a platform to share progress on the CattleTrace project, foster discussions around the future of animal disease traceability (ADT) and provide an opportunity for beef industry stakeholders to offer feedback on the current program.
USDA Undersecretary Greg Ibach has been invited to address the current state of traceability and discuss future steps for ADT. Additionally, Andrew Moxey with ScotEID Livestock Traceability will discuss Scotland’s experience using ultra-high frequency technology for cattle. The CattleTrace team also will offer the first look at the database and conduct a mock trace demonstration.
