Kansas Announces CattleTrace Pilot Project
for Disease Traceability
On June 30th, CattleTrace, a collaborative partnership between the Kansas Department of Agriculture, the Beef Cattle Institute at Kansas State University, the Kansas Livestock Association, and other organizations and producer stakeholders was announced at Barton County Feeders near Ellinwood, Kansas.
CattleTrace, the industry-driven Kansas pilot project for animal disease traceability, was organized to evaluate the opportunities for an ADT system and to create and execute a pilot program to test methodology for tracking individual animals through multiple locations and points of commerce in the beef supply chain. .
