U.S. Cattle Identification Systems

U.S.  CATTLE  IDENTIFICATION  SYSTEMS: Risk Management and Market Opportunities is a planned collection of fact sheets, developed by authors with national expertise in the subject area.  Materials were developed during the summer of 2004 and published in October.  Additional materials and some updates were completed in the summer of 2006.

Please note that these fact sheets require Acrobat Reader, which can be downloaded free from the Adobe website. While feedback on the use and application of these materials is requested, reprinting and duplication of materials as presented is encouraged.  Bound copies of the fact sheets are available from the project coordinators.

This project was developed by the Western Extension Marketing Committee for extension and classroom audiences. For this set of materials, direct dollar contributors were the Western Center for Risk Management Education and the Livestock Marketing Information Center. For authors affiliated with universities, the project was also supported by their respective state Cooperative Extension Services.  Please direct any comments or questions to individual authors (e-mail addresses are on each article) or the project coordinators.
