Millions to further improve livestock database after farmers say it doesn't work

The Australian Government will provide $1 million to further improve the database backing Australia’s National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) — a whole-of-life identification and tracing system.
Australian Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Peter McGauran says the funding will be provided to Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) as manager of the database.
MLA proposes a range of activities:
• improving the database’s hosting facility, at a cost of $100,000
• buying and installing database development tools such as Catalize, JIRA and Test Director — $137,000
• developing a testing strategy and release process to reduce the frequency and seriousness of ‘bugs’ in the database — $145,000
• updating the database to meet the requirements of the NORM III program — $145,000
• funding the people who will be responsible for managing and operating JIRA, Catalize and Test Director products — $363,000
• funding an independent review of the database’s business systems, processes and technical documentation — $35,000
• funding the database’s on-going administration — $74,000.
Minister McGauran described the NLIS as a powerful tracing tool to bolster the security of Australia’s multi-billion dollar livestock industry, generating rapid responses to any national pest or disease emergency.
“It will also help maintain vital export markets. Farm exports contribute more than $30 billion a year to the national economy. Our ability to further build trade in our premium quality food is underpinned by our excellent animal health status.
“NLIS will help in the critical task of maintaining our competitive edge on hard-fought world markets,” Minister McGauran said.
Funding for the database is part of a $20m Commonwealth funding plan to develop the livestock identification system.

Sure is different over there, in fact anywhere outside the US when it comes to a national MID program. Why is it that Americans don't trust anyone.....even themselves.

Has it soaked in yet that the Australian system doesn't work? They're just throwing more money at it.

The Australian cattleman at the R-CALF convention told us enough about why and how it didn't work that I can tell you for sure that this extra money they're spending on it won't fix it.

Do you expect the US to follow a model that doesn't work?

Developing a testing strategy and release process to reduce the frequency and seriousness of ‘bugs’ in the database — $145,000 ,Might be 1.45million if the truth is right.

Has it soaked in yet that they are improving a system that is years ahead of yours?

“NLIS will help in the critical task of maintaining our competitive edge on hard-fought world markets,” Minister McGauran said.

While the Aussies, Canadians and others are working at improving their systems the US is still chasing it's tail and spouting every conspiracy theory imaginable as to why it won't work.

How hard did R-Calf have to look to find an Aussie who agreed with them? Although they admit their system is not perfect, all of the friends I have in Australia agree on the benefits of MID improving their system.

Yep- It doesn't surprise me you would agree with it Bill...Since it is another government funded subsidy- kind of like the Canuck one....Lets see- start out riding the shirttails of the US cattle producer- live for years off the USDA stamp- and now get subsidized so you can better compete :???:

Typical R-Clan response once again flip a thread into something anti-Canadian and complain about subsidies that don't even match your own.

You whine and bitch about NCBA, the check-off, the packers, MID and whatever else and then talk about the industy you built? What have you done that has been positive for cattlemen or the beef industry besides eat some of it?

There is that "shirttails" thing again. :D :D Good one OT !!! Care to itemize US subsidies and CDN subsidies and compare them??? I didn't think so!!!!
What you refer to as "riding the shirtails', conservative free enterprise folks would refer to as providing a comparable or superior product at a competitive price.
It would appear that you might be a closet socialist and are just too biased to see it. Take your arguements to the consumer and see how far you actually get!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
