Information Collection Request; Transfer of Farm Records Between Counties, 27037-27038 [2017-12221]

Download as PDF nlaroche on DSK30NT082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 112 / Tuesday, June 13, 2017 / Notices Service (APHIS) plans to hold two additional public meetings to receive input, particularly from the cattle and bison sectors, on enhancing the current Animal Disease Traceability (ADT) system. During April and May 2017, meetings took place in Oklahoma City, OK; Riverdale, MD; Nashville, TN; Bloomington, MN; Denver, CO; Rancho Cordova, CA; and Billings, MT. The original ADT framework, as described in the January 6, 2013, final rule 1 establishing the program, provided specific performance requirements for an intentionally flexible ADT system. This let States and individual producers use personally efficient methods to meet requirements to move their livestock between States. These meetings will provide additional opportunities for APHIS to hear from the public about the successes and challenges of the current ADT framework and let attendees brainstorm ideas about overcoming these challenges and finding ways to fill gaps in the existing system. Although APHIS is especially interested during these sessions to hear from cattle and bison industry members, we welcome participation from all members of the public. Each meeting will start with an overview of the basic principles of ADT and progress made to date given by APHIS employees and a panel of State and industry representatives. A comment/question and answer session will follow. After a break for lunch, attendees will split off into breakout sessions to discuss challenge areas and come up with solutions. The entire group will reconvene to receive the highlights of the breakout sessions, and the meeting will end after some discussion of next steps and closing remarks. If you are planning to attend a meeting, we ask that you register in advance by visiting http:// www.aphis.usda.gov/animal-health/adtmeeting-registrations. Same-day registration will also be available at each meeting site. If you require special accommodations, such as a sign language interpreter, please call or write the individual listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Written statements about the current ADT system may be filed at the meetings or by using one of the methods described under ADDRESSES above. 1 See https://www.regulations.gov/ docket?D=APHIS-2009-0091.
