In Kansas they are about to carry out a project on cattle traceability: a tool for biosecurity of the whole US livestock and farming industry

In Kansas, they are due to develop an experimental project: once it comes to completion, it will actively support the whole US livestock and farming industry. Several public and private partners, including the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Kansas Livestock Association, are currently involved in the implementation of “Cattle Trace”, an innovative tool for cattle end-to-end traceability (from soup to nuts, both in the manufacturing industry and in the commercial networks). The project, which is underway, aims to enhance biosecurity of US livestock units. As reported by US press, the project promoters (somehow like their colleagues from New Zealand) are confident that tracing cattle will ward off epidemic diseases that might spread through cows, bulls and calves.
