Regional Listening Sessions for Maine’s Animal ID Program
September 29, 2006
The Maine Department of Agriculture has scheduled a series of moderated public “listening sessions” on IDME, Maine’s Animal Identification Program. These listening sessions will give Maine citizens interested in animal health the opportunity to share their views with officials from the Maine Department of Agriculture. In addition, state officials will discuss the impact, in Maine, of recent changes by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), which announced that the program would remain voluntary and focus on premises registration. Livestock and poultry owners are encouraged to attend these important sessions to provide comment and to be updated on the USDA changes. The USDA announced its National Animal Identification Program in 2004. The program is three-tiered, including premises registration, animal identification, and recording and reporting. For more information, contact Judy Perry, 287-4507.
