The Canadian Cattle Identification Agency (CCIA) has redesigned its traceability app.
The CCIA’s database, known as the Canadian Livestock Tracking System (CLTS), is accessible to livestock producers via the CLTS MOBO app. The MOBO app first launched in 2010. It is now more user-friendly than ever, “with streamlined features and intuitive design,” states a press release from the agency.
For example, the new “offline mode” allows producers to input data and upload that data when the job is finished or when they are back in a service area. Producers can also submit birthdates, animal movement and retired events directly to the CLTS database. CLTS MOBO also has the technology to convert images of number lists into editable, searchable data that can be uploaded to a CLTS account.
The CCIA press release notes that traceability regulations are expected to change in 2019.
“Producers will have increased responsibilities including timely reporting of data, transportation information and premise identification obligations in order to be considered compliant,” states the release. “The Canadian Cattle Identification Agency is making it easier than ever to keep your records up-to-date and stay accountable.”
The app is available as a free download on Android and Apple devices. Producers can also visit the CCIA website for instructions or call the agency at 1-877-909-2333.
