Animal Health Department

Belize has implemented a National Bovine Traceablility System in which all the cattle are being identified in accordance with International Standards. The system also incoorperates the identification of all establishments with an animal movement control component. All relevant data are captured into a real time Central Information Bank. This traceability system provides support to the Bovine Brucellosis, Tuberculosis and Bovince Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) surveillance programs among others.
