Southwest rolls out stock ID
A program to register and identify livestock is being launched in
Arizona to help quickly trace the origin of diseased animals.
The Tri-National Livestock Health and Identification Consortium will
begin as a voluntary program but will eventually be required of all
livestock breeders and owners, said Katie Decker, a spokeswoman for the
Arizona Department of Agriculture. Arizona will join Colorado, New
Mexico and two Mexican states in the pilot program.
