Wisconsin Livestock Identification ConsortiumThe Wisconsin Livestock Identification Consortium has awarded a grant to the World Dairy Expo and AgSource/CRI to advance animal identification efforts in Wisconsin. According to WLIC, ” An animal movement reporting pilot project, by AgSource/CRI and World Dairy Expo, will develop a system that will facilitate the recording and reporting of animals, from WI and other states, to World Dairy Expo and the Dane County Fair.”

All projects will provide premises and animal ID data to the WLIC system. WLIC feels strongly that initiating animal ID pilot projects will help address specific questions producers and industry have in implementing a national animal ID program. Regional and species differences require different approaches. By adhering to national standards compatibility will be maintained.
