ID/INFO EXPO 2006 to Cover NAIS, Other Animal ID Developments

ID/INFO EXPO 2006 will provide the latest information on the National Animal Identification System (NAIS), as well as broad coverage of technical developments, traceability systems, state programs and various views on animal identification (ID), says program chairman Robert Fourdraine, of the Wisc. Livestock Identification Consortium.


The conference and trade show will be held August 22-24 at the Westin Crown Center in Kansas City.  ID/Info Expo is brought to you by the National Institute for Animal Agriculture (NIAA), and serves as the premier national meeting on animal ID. 


"Individuals are welcome, and we think it is a "must" for equine breed and registry organizations, general equine associations and officials of major shows. Not only will they get the real scoop on what's happening and when, they can ask all the "clarification" questions they want," says Gale Johnson, Communications Director.


The Equine Species Working Group will be delivering a presentation on Tuesday, August 22.


"ID/INFO EXPO is a one of a kind opportunity to learn more about animal ID and NAIS.  We know that everyone involved in animal agriculture wants to hear more about real solutions and get the latest information on NAIS and ID. Our committee is working hard to do just that," Fourdraine says.


The $100 "Early" early advance registration discount ends June 30, but attendees who register before July 28 will still receive a $50 discount.
