The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) today released the results of a comprehensive benefit-cost analysis on the National Animal Identification System (NAIS).

For industry, the effect of not implementing some aspects of NAIS (maintaining status quo) may result in significant losses—as great as $13.2 billion annually due to reduced export market access.

The swine and poultry industries each have a lower cost because animal tracing requirements for these species require less infrastructure and often no individual identification devices.
