On April 28, 2019, a seminar took place at the Agribusiness Teaching Center for the National Agrarian University students within the frames of the ABioNET project. Sergey Chakhmakhchyan, Animal Health and Food Safety expert of the project, funded by the Austrian Development Agency and implemented by the CARD Foundation, presented the importance of animal registry and numbering in food safety.
In all countries animal identification and registration has a significant role in the development of economy, especially in agriculture. Historically, animal registration and identification system was established by organizations dealing with pedigree work, for data management of animal genetics, organizing livestock and veterinary work in farms and for improving epidemic situation by Veterinary Control Bodies.
Animal registration and identification is a significant method for the control of food safety and diseases, especially against diseases such as brucellosis, tuberculosis, anthrax, food and mouth disease, spongy encephalopathy etc.
