WLIC's NEW CoreOne System
Exciting news! Wisconsin Livestock Identification Consortium (WLIC) is getting a system upgrade from its current Premises Registration Database to a new system, in order to better suit the needs of our users and ensure a higher level of data quality and animal traceability.

On October 1 st , WLIC will launch a system upgrade to CoreOne (a TraceFirst product), that will provide a more robust animal identification system, including a more comprehensive premises registration process.

The new system will include enhancements such as:
  •  The eventual ability to provide full-animal traceability from the farm of origin
  • The ability to provide more comprehensive reporting and data quality, regarding:
  • Premises Registration Information
  • Vaccine Information
  • Certified Veterinary Inspection (CVI) Information
  • Animal Movements
  • Dairy License Information
  • Other licenses, programs, and more!

WI-Origin Tags Now Available!
WLIC is selling Wisconsin-branded tags, as well as readers and taggers on our website in the online store!

The WLIC online store gives producers several options for purchasing the WI-Origin™ tags, including choice of style, color, and price. Other preferences include a selection of both RFID (radio frequency identification), or non-RFID tags.

WLIC is competitively priced and all proceeds will be used to fund our programs and services. In addition, Allflex, USA, provides WLIC with a 10-cent rebate for every Wisconsin-branded tag sold.
