Equine Species Working Group Unveils New Web Site

 The Equine Species Working Group is announcing the release of their new web site: www.equinespeciesworkinggroup.com. The information was previously housed in the American Horse Council Web Site, and includes important information on what the ESWG is, who it is made up of, previous press releases on the NAIS, frequently asked questions, and more. 


The ESWG is the designated United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) working group for horses on the issue of the National Animal Identification System (NAIS).  It is the working group’s responsibility to review and evaluate the NAIS and the possible participation of the horse industry in the program, as well as developing recommendations for a national equine identification plan that is in the best interests of, and protects the rights of, horse owners and breeders.   


For more information on the Equine Species Working Group and what the NAIS might mean to the horse industry, please visit this newly developed web site found above or e-mail info@horsecouncil.org.
