World Dairy Expo implementing new cattle identification in 2013

April 4, 2013 | 0 comments

World Dairy Expo is introducing changes to their dairy cattle health check-in process.

In an effort to strengthen the event biosecurity and in accordance with the new USDA Animal Disease Traceability (ADT) rule, exhibitors bringing cattle to World Dairy Expo will need to have an accepted World Dairy Expo-defined ID tag in the animal's ear upon entering the grounds.

Within this rule change, registration numbers and breed tattoos will no longer be official identification for interstate transport.

At the March 4 WDE Dairy Cattle Exhibitor Committee meeting it was approved to require all cattle, including those from Wisconsin, to meet the same World Dairy Expo health check-in identification standard.

The following ID tags will be accepted by World Dairy Expo for health check-in starting in 2013:

• A Canadian Cattle Identification Agency (CCIA) Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) tag - 15 digit number starting with 124;

• A USDA 840 Animal Identification Number (AIN) RFID Tag - 15 digit number starting with 840;

• A USDA 840 Animal Identification Number (AIN) Visual Tag - 15 digit number starting with 840;

• *A manufacturer coded tamper evident RFID tag - 15 digit number starting with 900 or greater;

*NOTE: Manufacturer coded RFID tags will be discontinued as official ID by USDA starting in 2015.

It is recommended that U.S. exhibitors with cattle that do not have one of the above 15 digit number accepted ID tags visit with an approved 840 AIN tag distributor to secure 840 AIN RFID tags. All breed associations can provide exhibitors with these 840 AIN ID tags.

Dairy cattle exhibitors are encouraged to visit the Dairy Cattle Show page at www.worlddairyexpo.com for complete details and to view a color 2013 WDE Identification Method graphic flyer.

Exhibitors may also call the WDE office at 608-224-6455 for further information.
