Dear Cattle Producer:
On Tuesday, September 3 at 6:30 PM, the collaborators of the CattleTrace Pilot Project for animal disease traceability and K-State Research and Extension will be hosting an information session at Manhattan Commission Co. It will include a project update and details of how cow-calf producers and backgrounder operators can get involved.
In early 2018, the CattleTrace collaborators began working to develop a purpose-built infrastructure to track cattle movement through the supply chain. CattleTrace is utilizing ultra-high frequency technology to collect the minimal necessary data, including an individual animal identification number, a GPS location (of the readers), and date and time, in order to track animals in the event of a disease outbreak. Tag readers are located at partner livestock markets, including Manhattan Commission Co., feed yards and beef processors, with movement data collection having started in fall 2018 and continuing through at least summer 2020.

Registration is due by August 30.

Agriculture Agent
K-State Research and Extension - Riley County

Please RSVP for this event by August 30th @ 785-765-3821 or kamayer@ksu.edu
