USDA’s four overarching goals for increasing traceability are:

  • Advance the electronic sharing of data among federal and state animal health officials, veterinarians and industry; including sharing basic animal disease traceability data with the federal animal health events repository (AHER).
  • Use electronic ID tags for animals requiring individual identification in order to make the transmission of data more efficient;
  • Enhance the ability to track animals from birth to slaughter through a system that allows tracking data points to be connected; and
  • Elevate the discussion with States and industry to work toward a system where animal health certificates are electronically transmitted from private veterinarians to state animal health officials.

These goals reflect the core themes resulting from a State and Federal Animal Disease Traceability Working Group that developed 14 key points for advancing traceability. They are also in keeping with feedback APHIS received at stakeholder meetings held across the country to hear from industry and producers directly.
