These ear tags will be used to uniquely identify U.S. livestock that are part of current animal disease programs, in particular within geographic regions where bovine tuberculosis testing and the brucellosis calfhood vaccination programs are most active.

NAIS is an information system that helps producers and animal health officials respond quickly and effectively to disease outbreaks or animal health events in the United States. For more information go to http://www.aphis.usda.gov/.
