ARKANSAS - A state agency has begun a voluntary farm identification program it says is designed to help Arkansas maintain the safety of its portion of the nation&#39;s food supply. The National Animal Identification System was established to try to head off agri-terrorism. State Livestock and Poultry Federation chief Phil Wyrick says registering farms is the first step in developing a national animal identification program for protecting animal health. The registry helps officials quickly track contagious animal diseases. <i>Source: kait8</i>
