Livestock Information Programme

AIMS are one of several organisations that are part of the Traceability Design

User Group (TDYG) within the Livestock Information Programme.

The key objective of the programme is to implement a robust,

accurate and flexible livestock traceability and information service that enables the UK to maintain existing high levels of livestock traceability and to enable:

  • More effective livestock disease management and control nationally, regionally and within herds/flocks

  • More accurate disease forecasting and data modelling

  • More proportionate, targeted enforcement and inspections

  • Increased consumer confidence in British meat products

  • Easier ways of recording livestock events quickly and accurately

  • Increased livestock productivity efficiencies

  • Domestic and international trade opportunities

At its heart, the Livestock Information Service will collate, manage and safely share the data associated with animals from birth to death in a GDPR-compliant way.  It will also enable the development of a range of ‘value-add’ products and tools that have the potential to benefit the meat and livestock industry.

There a 3 information films which introduce the work and cover the benefits for farmers, processors and the meat industry.
