The major goal of the Animal Health and Identification programs is to enhance economic production of livestock.
Our three major programs work toward the following:
- Control and eradicate animal diseases, including those transmissible to humans
- Prevent livestock theft by denying a market for stolen animals through recording of brands and inspection of animals
- Ensure animal feeds meet nutritional and labeling standards
