CT Animal Traceability System (CATS)

The Connecticut Department of Agriculture in cooperation with USDA and Connecticut producers are developing an Animal Disease three pigletsTraceability System that will further enhance emergency response and animal health programs.
Development of such a system is designed to protect animal health and improve our ability to respond to unforeseen outbreaks of potentially devastating animal diseases, acts of bioterrorism, or natural disasters.
Knowing the location of at risk animals is essential for
pre-planning, response, and recovery of an emergency or animal health event. It will also facilitate and streamline the process of moving animals interstate.
It's free of charge to register for a location identifier and this enables you, the producer, to become part of our animal response network.
Information regarding Animal Traceability can be found at the USDA Animal Plant Inspection Service (APHIS) website.
