Traceability in Canada
Canada’s traceability process is considered an important step towards the containment and eradication of animal disease. The TRACE system is built on three elements: animal identification, premises identification and movement reporting, and creates a need for change throughout Canada’s cattle industry. Animal identification for cattle is mandatory in Canada.
LMS members recognize a smooth transition means working together with Saskatchewan cattle producers and other industry stakeholders. For a better understanding of how the Canadian Cattle Identification Program will affect you, ask the Canadian Cattle Identification Agency
