Federal and provincial ag ministers have been discussing the possibility of establishing a traceability task force.  Julie Stitt is the executive director of the Canadian Cattle Identification Agency.  She says there’s concern the task force could lead to duplication in the livestock system.  Stitt stresses they already have a working world class program.  Stitt encourages federal and provincial ag ministers to build on the current infrastructure, but feels developing a new database or system is not the way to go.
