Cow-Calf Producer Perceptions Regarding Individual Animal Traceability
This study provides valuable insights into cow-calf producer voluntary participation in the National Animal Identification System and producersâ€™ perceptions of several issues critically impacting the success of voluntary traceability systems. �Cow-calf producers believe that the most important issues to the U.S. beef industry in designing a national, individual animal traceability system are monitoring/managing disease, maintaining current foreign markets, accessing foreign markets, and increasing consumer confidence. �Furthermore, producers are concerned with cost, liability, reliability of technology, failure of system to meet stated goals, and confidentiality of information associated with these systems.
