USDA sets 2009 goal for livestock tracking system

first_img If only 50% of animals are registered, “It is not a workable system,” Johanns said. “But I think producers . . . understand that, and my hope is that they will embrace what we are offering, which is a voluntary approach.” Apr 6 USDA news release The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) began working on its National Animal Identification System (NAIS) after the first US case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or mad cow disease, was discovered in December 2003. After that case and the two subsequent BSE cases, it took investigators weeks or longer to trace other cattle that might have been exposed to the disease. An implementation plan released by the USDA yesterday calls for registration of 70% of premises and identification of 40% of animals by January 2008. By January 2009, the USDA aims to have all facilities registered and identification procedures in place for all newborn animals. In addition, the agency hopes to have complete movement data available for 60% of animals under 1 year old by that time. Under the current plan, industry participation in the NAIS is voluntary, but Johanns said it could become mandatory if producers and other industry groups are slow to sign on. The USDA has authority to make the program mandatory without new legislation, he told reporters. The NAIS is a cooperative and voluntary effort of the federal government, states, Indian tribes, and industry. Under the plan, each newborn animal will get a 15-digit identification number linked to its birthplace. The plan also calls for the registration of all livestock premises—farms, feedlots, sale barns, packing plants, and other facilities—coupled with the creation of animal tracking databases managed by the states and industry groups. “A national animal ID system will dramatically improve our ability to respond to animal disease outbreaks,” Johanns said at the news conference. The system “will help animal health officials identify the birthplace of a diseased animal and shorten the time required to trace the animal’s history to identify other potentially exposed animals.” Parts of the system are already built. Registration of premises was under way in all 50 states and two territories by August 2005, and 235,000 premises, roughly 10% of the total, have registered, USDA officials said. Also, animal identification began last month. USDA NAIS sitehttp://www.aphis.usda.gov/traceability/ “A long-term goal is to be able to identify all animals and premises that have had direct contact with the disease of concern within 48 hours of discovery,” Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns said at a press conference on the plan. Given the scale of the program, the USDA’s implementation schedule is “very amibitious,” Johanns said. “We are asking the industry, not just cattle but in other areas, to really change how they look at things.” See also: The USDA has spent about $84 million on the system so far, said Johanns. Yesterday the USDA released technical standards to provide for the linkage of private animal tracking databases with the NAIS. The agency will sign agreements with private databases that meet the standards, officials said. Johanns described the NAIS as an enormous undertaking. “At any given time you have 90 to 100 million head of cattle in the United States. There has never been a system put in place that would deal with that kind of magnitude,” he said. “We are talking about a system that literally says from the time of their birth through the entire chain, we will trace that animal until we can ascertain where the animal was finally processed.” Apr 7, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – Under a schedule laid out yesterday by federal agriculture officials, a nationwide livestock identification system to help in the investigation and control of animal disease outbreaks will be fully operational by 2009. By early next year, the USDA expects to have a system in place that will permit state and federal animal health officials to query the NAIS and private databases during disease investigations. The system will be called the Animal Trace Processing or Metadata system, the agency said. The primary focus of the NAIS now is on cattle, officials said. But working groups are looking at the extension of the system to other species, including swine, sheep and goats, horses, deer and elk, and even llamas, said Dr. John Clifford, the USDA’s chief veterinarian. Johanns said the US livestock industry will need the tracking system to stay competitive with other beef exporters, such as Australia and Canada. “Traceability is being used as a marketing tool by several countries,” he said. “For example, Australia is aggressively marketing animal traceability to gain a competitive advantage over us.” Transcript of Apr 6 USDA news conference Newspaper reports have described cattle producers as wary of the plan, particularly the cost of the identification tags and the privacy of data. Meanwhile, some consumer groups have pressed the USDA to move faster and to make the plan mandatory.last_img read more

Historical day for Istrian winemakers – adopted Strategy for the development of winemaking and viticulture in Istria until 2030.

first_imgThe Electoral Assembly of Vinistra unanimously supported the most important strategic document for the development of Istrian winemaking and viticulture. Istria thus became the first wine region in Croatia to make such a step forward and adopt a strategy for the development of winemaking and viticulture until 2030.Retaining the status of the region’s leader in winemaking and viticulture, increasing exports and competitiveness, strengthening the brand and following global marketing trends – are some of the most important goals of the Strategy for the Development of Istrian Viticulture and Enology until 2030, unanimously adopted in Porec at the Vinistra Electoral Assembly.During a quarter of a century of existence of the Association of Istrian Winemakers and Winegrowers, Istrian wine from an unrecognizable product has become a brand, Istrian winemakers have a world-renowned product, their wineries are attractive tourist destinations, and wine is one of the first three motives for tourists.An important role in the promotion of Istrian wines was played by Vinistra, the most popular and longest-running Croatian wine exhibition focusing on indigenous varieties of Malvasia and Teran, which delighted the most famous wine critics and marketing experts such as Steven Spurrier, Oz Clarke and Tony Hodges.In short, the goal of the Strategy is to strengthen the Istrian wine brand on the world wine scene. In the past 25 years, Istria has made the most in winemaking and viticulture in Croatia. The time has come for a new step forward. The basic motive in the development of the Strategy is the desire to maintain a leading position in Croatia and the region, but also to increase the number of arrivals of wine lovers from around the world who will visit Istria and enjoy our wines.”, Said Nikola Benvenuti, the new-old president of Vinistra, whose mandate for four years was unanimously reaffirmed at the Electoral Assembly.The strategy was developed with the strong support of the County of Istria and in cooperation with Vinistra, an association with 130 members who have a clear vision of what Istria should look like as a wine region in 2030. “Today, Istria has about 3200 hectares under vineyards and annually produces more than 20 million liters of wine, and much has already been done in terms of investing in vineyards and new agricultural techniques, so this document is an additional wind in the back for more than 130 Istrian winemakers and vineyard”, Concludes Benvenuti.Other regions also have vineyards and olive groves, maybe even better predispositions, but to have top quality it is necessary to work in the long run, educate yourself, network, raise technology and knowledge, and finally brand the whole story, which is extremely difficult in today’s world of wine and strong competition. . However, Istria started 25 years ago, a Master Plan for the development of tourism in the Istrian County was made, the Vinistra… association was founded, and today they are only reaping the fruits of many years of work and effort.Today, Istria, as the strongest enogastronomic region in Croatia, has its own edition of the Michelin guide, Michelin-starred restaurants and recommendations, Istria has been declared the best olive growing region in the world, and they are on the trail in terms of top quality wine. Nothing is accidental, not even the fact that Istria is our main tourist region and decades ahead of others in Croatia.RELATED NEWS:NIKOLA BENVENUTI, VINISTRA: ISTRIAN WINERS HAVE LONG RECOGNIZED THE STRENGTH OF THE BRAND, THE IMPORTANCE OF COMMUNITY AND ASSOCIATION FOR POSITIONING ON THE WINE MAP OF THE WORLDSAŠA ŠPIRANEC: WINERS MUST BE ORGANIZED IN FOUR GREAT ASSOCIATIONS: SLAVONIA, DALMATIA, ISTRIA AND KVARNER, AND HILLY CROATIAISTRIA FOR THE THIRD TIME IN A ROW IS DECLARED THE BEST QUALITY EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE REGION IN THE WORLDISTRIA GOT ITS MICHELIN GUIDElast_img read more
