The National Agricultural Law Center recently added a new research article entitled “Cattle Traceability: Potential Legal Implications,” to its library of publications.

As the cattle industry considers implementation of a farm-to-fork traceability system, concerns about the legal implications consequential to that system have been raised. This paper outlines those concerns, including potential legal theories under which cattle producers and finishers may either be protected or held liable. You may download the document here.

Research publications are a vital part of the Center’s mission to conduct objective, timely, and non-partisan research into agricultural and food law issues and to provide that scholarship to the agricultural and food law communities.  An index with links to our library of research publications is available here.
