Expoaviga focus on electronic identification and traceability
The fifth Expoaviga focused on new technological
solutions to actual European concerns: animal welfare, food safety, electronic

of agriculture declared that by 2004 all Spanish herds will have to be
electronically identified to improve traceability. A special technical meeting
on electronic identification showed that reliable systems for pigs are lagging
behind those for ruminants.
