The Equine Species Working Group made recommendations Aug. 1 to the National Animal Identification System subcommittee on how the equine industry might reach NAIS compliance in the future. Each of the different species working groups report to the NAIS subcommittee, which in turn reports to the secretary of agriculture's advisory committee on foreign animal and poultry diseases. The two focal points of the ESWG report were movement and identification.
The Equine Species Working Group, the designated United States Department of Agriculture working group for horses on the issue of the National Animal Identification System, is soliciting proposals in the area of equine identification related to equine health and disease control.
The American Horse Council announced that the Equine Species Working Group has developed an informational booklet titled "NAIS and Horses: the Facts Surrounding the National Animal Identification System as it Applies to the Horse Industry in the U.S."
