By Bruce Schultz, LSU AgCenter

ABBEVILLE — Cattle producers who fail to adopt a traceability system eventually may have difficulty selling their product, an LSU AgCenter veterinarian warned. Dr. Christine Navarre said at the Acadiana Cattle Producers fall field day on Oct. 24 that the traceability requirement is needed to help control a disease outbreak and because consumers want to know the source of their food.
