The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Mohammed Abubakar has disclosed that the Ministry is in collaboration with stakeholders to institute a National Animal Identification and Traceability System in the country.

The Minister revealed this at a Summit on National Livestock Transformation Plan (NLTP) in Abuja on Wednesday.
Abubakar says the System is one of the multi-faceted approaches to unlock the potentials of the nation’s livestock resources for increased employment opportunities, improved livelihoods and income.

The Minister also lamented the very low consumption level of milk and dairy products in the country even with the Livestock sector being a major component of the agricultural economy.
