|Project description|| |
The overall objectives of the project were to
(1) improve the development of the livestock sector in Montenegro ensuring the protection of animal health and control of veterinary public health and to
(2) facilitate the introduction of an EU-compliant food safety control system for products of animal origin enabling full traceability of all animal movements (stable-to-table approach).
The specific objective included the development of a concept, system design and implementation plan for an integrated animal I&R and veterinary surveillance network. The project had to create a computerised register of cattle holdings that meets current EU standards and that forms a model for future extension to other livestock. The holding register has to be usable for different agricultural management databases. Further, an integrated system of identification and registration of cattle in line with EU standards had to be implemented. The computerised system should include comprehensive recording of all births, deaths, slaughters and movements, and should have the capacity to interface with other agricultural systems so as to avoid duplication of data collection.
