QAD Questions and Answers - PFEU  
Q1: Must individual animals be identified in the PFEU Program?
A: Yes, each group of animals, as defined by the pork production system, must be identified with a unique identification to maintain segregation and to facilitate traceback throughout the system, in the event of a violation. The identification system must include the type of system used to identify groups of animals (such as ear clips, ear tags, tattoos, ear notches, etc.) and at what point this identification is applied.
