New Zealand meat: banishing the specter of BSE

NEW ZEALAND - A New Zealand government advisory group's recommendation to set up a compulsory identification system for every farm animal in the country is to be welcomed. If implemented, the system will give further reassurance to consumers around the world as to the healthy status of New Zealand meat, which in turn may help to bolster meat exports. The Meat and Wool New Zealand report, released by the Animal Identification and Traceability Working Group, has recommended that a mandatory system for animal identification be in place in New Zealand by October 2007.
