Solutiuon to BSE: Mandatory RFID trackers

Dirty Digital Angel. I wonder how long it will take for humans.

Latest BSE case is reminder of need for animal ID, says e-tag maker

The confirmation on Sunday of a new case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in a 10-year-old Canadian dairy cow reinforces the need for a comprehensive, reliable and effective livestock tracking system, according to Kevin McGrath, CEO of Digital Angel, which manufactures e-tags.

The company said today it delivered more than a quarter million of its radio frequency identification tags to its Canadian distributors during the months of November and December, and said its global business in 2004 was four times what it was in 2003.

"Clearly, there is significantly increased demand from Canada and the world as a result of the need for national and global identification programs for livestock," McGrath said in a release.

"We look forward to working with the governments of the US, Canada and other countries to implement RFID tracking systems as soon as possible," he added.
