NIAA: Johanns, Canadian & Mexican Counterparts Invited To Address Premier ID Event

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Secretary Mike Johanns, Canadian Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, Chuck Strahl, and Mexico Secretary of Agriculture, Alberto Cardenas have been invited to give their nations’ perspective on animal identification at the National Institute for Animal Agriculture’s (NIAA) ID•INFO EXPO 2007.

The annual event, which has become the premier meeting regarding livestock identification and information systems technology, is scheduled for August 28-30, in Kansas City, Missouri at the Westin Crown Center.

“For the past two years, the focus of ID•INFO EXPO has been on the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Animal Identification System (NAIS), but producers and industry partners are also using livestock identification and traceability for purposes other than NAIS and animal health. These uses include Country of Origin Labeling (COOL), food safety, value added programs, and on farm use of ID which will be addressed as well,” states the event’s chairman Robert Fourdraine.

His co-chair, Glenn Fischer, points out that because of our close partnerships with Canada and Mexico, “it is important that we begin the process of harmonizing all three nations’ ID policies and systems. There’s no better way of doing that than having the top agricultural officials from each nation state their views on ID issues and elaborate on each’s concerns and policies,” he says.

“These same threads will run throughout the entire meeting and hopefully will also be reflected by exhibitors and participants in the accompanying tradeshow,” agree both chairmen.
