This Sunday Paul Griepentrog will be joining us as we discuss how NAIS and Premises ID are being implemented on a statewide basis. Here is the latest from the USDA APHIS website:

On February 5, 2010, USDA announced a new, flexible framework for animal disease traceability in the United States. The framework will provide the basic tenets of an improved animal disease traceability capability in the United States. USDA’s efforts will:

Only apply to animals moved in interstate commerce;

Be administered by the States and Tribal Nations to provide more flexibility;

Encourage the use of lower-cost technology; and

Be implemented transparently through federal regulations and the full rulemaking process.

USDA is committed to working in partnership with States, Tribal Nations and industry in the coming months to address many of the details of this framework, and is establishing a Secretary’s Advisory Committee on Animal Health to address specific issues, such as confidentiality and liability.

Sounds pretty innocuous, eh? Wait until you hear what Paul has to say!
