The precautionary principle---sometimes thought of as the most innovative, pervasive, and significant new environmental concept in the last 25 years.

Is it Better Safe Than Sorry or a politically charged over-simplification blocking innovation? How will Animal Agriculture balance the future and feed a population of 9.1 billion by 2050?

NIAA 2014 Annual Conference

&

NIAA/USAHA Joint Forum on
Trichomoniasis Standards

NIAA 2014 Annual Conference:

The theme of “Precautionary Principle” coupled with animal agriculture is spot-on for this conference as this principle is being utilized by some governments to make regulatory decisions. 

It is a strategy to cope with possible risks where scientific understanding is yet incomplete, such as the risks of nano-technology, genetically modified organisms and systemic insecticides.

How animal agriculture deals with the impacts of the precautionary principle now and in the future will dictate how innovative and competitive US agriculture will be in the global marketplace. 

NIAA/USAHA Joint Forum on Trichimoniasis Standards:

USAHA and NIAA have partnered to develop the “Forum on Trichomoniasis Standards” slated for Thursday, April 3, the day after NIAA’s Annual Conference.

The Forum will allow state veterinarians, animal health officials and other interested individuals to discuss challenges and develop solutions regarding more standardization of rules intended to prevent introduction of trich into cattle herds. To date, inconsistency in individual state requirements creates burdensome barriers to seedstock trade, and harmonization can help eliminate this burden.
