Broad support for changes to Animal Identification

Broad support for changes to Animal Identification

The wider livestock farming community is in broad agreement with proposed changes to the national animal identification system according to a report on the results of a consultation on the subject by the Animal Identification and Traceability Working Group.

Working Group chairman Jeff Grant says there was a good response to their consultation document having received 83 submissions.

“The report that we’ve just released highlights the results from the submissions made to the group and also contains an analysis and response from the Working Group. We were pleased to see that most of the submissions came from people and organisations involved in the industry.”

“Most of the submissions supported, in principle, the proposed changes, however we’re aware that extensive development of the concept and the practicalities associated with changes to the system is needed.”

Jeff Grant says the next step for the working group is to establish a Governance Group to take responsibility for the continuation of the process.

“The Governance Group will consist of representatives nominated by the pastoral sector organisations on the Working Group. One of the first tasks of the Governance Group will be to seek funding from Government and levy organisations to put a plan together so they can complete the project and make sure it’s implemented nationally.”

Gordon Campbell: On Finding A Model To Replace The Monarchy

One feels reluctant to pre-empt the verdict of history, but maybe we need to have a Plan B in mind just in case the reign of King Charles III turns out badly. With that possibility in mind, are there any other countries that do a reasonably good job of electing their ceremonial head of state? There is no perfect model for New Zealand to follow but - arguably - Ireland has made a pretty good fist of it over the past 70 years or so. Ireland has roughly the same population as New Zealand, so the pool of talent is similar in size...
