Agency Says Registration of Arkansas Farms will Help Food Supply

ARKANSAS - A state agency has begun a voluntary farm identification program it says is designed to help Arkansas maintain the safety of its portion of the nation's food supply.

The National Animal Identification System was established to try to head off agri-terrorism.

State Livestock and Poultry Federation chief Phil Wyrick says registering farms is the first step in developing a national animal identification program for protecting animal health. The registry helps officials quickly track contagious animal diseases.
