Livestock identification is crucial for traceability and it is directly related to public health as well as to livestock conservation.
For keeping proper breeding records as well.
•Animal identification and record keeping help farmers to make the right decision on culling poorly performing animals in a herd.
•In the long run, an animal’s history can be tracked, good and bad performers can be identified and the information managed to ensure profit maximization.
•A farmer can further consolidate animal data output through the adoption of a specific farm management software.
•Effective systems need both tracking of animals down the food chain from producer to slaughter or to retail, and tracing, which is the ability to follow a meat product up the supply chain by means of the records which have been kept at each stage of the chain.
•Traceability, transparency and quality assurance are the bases for livestock product assurance and accreditation schemes. Traceability relies on efficient livestock identification and movement recording.
•Identification of farmed livestock is a legal requirement in many countries and the movements of cattle, sheep, goats and pigs must be recorded both on farm and centrally.
