New Jersey Description:  The Division of Animal Health of the New Jersey Department of Agriculture is seeking to establish and support a New Jersey Cattle Health Assurance Program. The long-term objective is to establish a New Jersey Dairy Quality Management Alliance (DQMA) initiative that promotes the adoption of the successful New York Cattle Health Assurance Program (NYSCHAP) model. This model program integrates the best management practices based on a comprehensive risk assessment of herd health and current management practices. The New Jersey Cattle Health Assurance Program will educate veterinarians and producers on the need to begin voluntary implementation of good management practices that will enhance the profitability and consistent quality and safety of milk and dairy beef products. The base program is the establishment and implementation of a group of general "best management practices" that have proven to be important intervention points for the maintenance of animal health and production of safe and wholesome food products. The program will develop statewide educational workshops and will ask for five volunteers who will demonstrate the effectiveness of disease control programs and share their experiences with their peers. Initially the program will concentrate on Johnes' disease, Salmonella, E. coli O157:H7, residues and mastitis.

New York Description:  The New York State Cattle Health Assurance Program was designed as an integrated management-based approach to many of the future challenges facing the livestock production industry. The program is process-oriented rather than product-oriented. This means that producers are given credit for product produced in accordance with methods that promote herd health, food safety and environmental responsibility. This information can be utilized to encourage product consumption, make informed purchases of herd replacements, and can address many environmental issues. A new approach is required to meet the numerous future challenges faced by the livestock production industry. Food safety/quality issues will drive a growing proportion of animal health programs in the future. Consumer driven issues command political attention. Producers and responsible agencies will have to establish preventative intervention strategies to maintain confidence in the food supply. Pathogen reduction programs must be designed with an inherent flexibility to accommodate the wide array of pathogens, management styles, environmental conditions, and animal health expertise available to the farm. The key, and the most difficult part of designing such programs, is to insure program credibility while maintaining that flexibility. The FSIS funding is to support the position of a coordinator for the New York State Cattle Health Assurance Program. The position's purpose will be to compile and encourage the adoption of residue avoidance and food safety preventive practices, animal/premise ID, recordkeeping, management practices that comply with certification programs and support for efforts to address zoonotic and human pathogens, herd health hygiene, and biosecurity preventive strategies.

Ohio Description:  In light of Ohio's progress in implementing packing plant HACCP programs, the state is in great need of a uniform Beef Quality Assurance Program. Ohio's beef producers must begin to make the transition and become more aware of their responsibilities relative to food safety, providing assurance to packing plants processing the livestock. Implementation of an Ohio Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Program represents a proactive effort to educate Ohio beef producers about quality assurance procedures and guidelines. The program will develop a Beef Quality Assurance instructional manual. It will include information concerning proper recordkeeping, proper drug use, tissue and chemical residue avoidance, extra label drug use, feed source verification, and good animal husbandry practices. Structured training sessions will be provided to train the trainer on a statewide basis. Future aspects of the program involve out-year development of a web site, CD-ROM-based educational programs, and third party verification.

Oregon Description:  Oregon agriculture has significant components in food animal production. Both beef and dairy industries are major contributors to the agricultural economy, as well as smaller segments in sheep and poultry. Organized commodity groups already have quality assurance programs in place or in planning stages. In the Oregon dairy and beef industries, quality assurance program efforts have been directed at the food safety issue of drug and chemical residue avoidance. With a growing public and government concern for other food safety issues, like foodborne pathogens and transmission of antibiotic resistance from food animal groups to humans, the time has come for a major education effort in that direction. The program intends to educate producers of food animals about pathogen reduction strategies at the production level. There will be special emphasis on strategies that are broad in scope and have potential for controlling multiple pathogens. The program will develop materials to be used to conduct meetings with producer groups and assure that all points are covered as appropriate.

South Carolina Description:  Historically, South Carolina has had a problem with salmonella in eggs. Because of the problem, the South Carolina egg producers began a voluntary program to reduce the incidence of salmonella in eggs. The volunteer nature of the program places the burden on the egg producers to develop a pathogen reduction plan specifically for their premises. Although the egg producers are eager to comply with this program, they lack the training and expertise in pathogen reduction to accomplish this goal. To enhance the level of safety in table eggs produced in South Carolina, the state has implemented an on-farm pathogen reduction training program on food safety issues for table egg producers by conducting a series of workshops and on-farm training sessions. The workshops address issues such as biosecurity preventive strategies, maintenance of  good sanitation production practices, recordkeeping, and storage of food products.

South Dakota Description:  South Dakota producers realize that with changing demographics and massive processing distribution systems, the risks pertinent to food safety are changing and must be addressed at every step from production through transportation, to slaughter and retail. Concerns that the establishment of critical control points (CCP's) by processors at the point of production has moved to the center of concern for producers. These procedures could lead to advantage vertically integrated operations in that the critical physical, chemical, and biological hazards could be satisfied by HACCP-like system within vertically integrated operations at the production level. South Dakota cattlemen need to assure that a HACCP-like system, with adequate verification, is available to independent producers, regardless of the size of the operation. The South Dakota Animal Industry Board working with the South Dakota Cattlemen's Association and South Dakota Stock Growers have joined to form a voluntary beef quality assurance/critical management point committee to develop such a system. The system includes guidelines and agreements that involve producers adhering to specific requirements regarding feedstuffs, feed additives, cattle treatments, animal well-being, veterinary/client/patient relationship and recordkeeping. Following training, producers develop a plan with their chosen licensed, accredited veterinarian and other experts. The goal of the program is to have 20,000 beef producers involved in the verified production control program within four years.

Texas Description:  The short-range goals of the Texas Animal Health Commission food safety outreach project is to develop channels of communication that could be used to promote awareness among food animal producers of the need to implement voluntary production practices, which might improve animal health, and/or reduce the risk of chemical, physical, or microbial public health hazards from entering the human food supply. The Commission's efforts focus on encouraging development of local and regional partnerships among allied agricultural entities within Texas to foster cooperative activities that would improve delivery and exchange of information with special emphasis on reaching small producers and their suppliers. The Commission is using the existing framework of the Texas Animal Health Commission's designated "key person" assigned to each of 254 counties in Texas to make contacts and to strengthen existing informal partnerships with allied agricultural entities that are essential to the effective transfer of information designed to improve animal health by encouraging adoption of improved management practices. A database has been created at the Texas Animal Health Commission in Austin containing names and addresses of thousands of producers, suppliers, and other animal agricultural entities to assist in dissemination of relative messages about improved animal health management practices. For example, over 12,000 copies of the Commission's 12-page informational newsletter "Animal Health Matters" were prepared and distributed. This activity provides an avenue to provide animal health-related information to a broad audience in a cost-effective fashion. Also numerous presentations have been made to food animal associations and to individuals by Animal Health Commission personnel with producers individually.

Vermont Description:  Vermont ranks first in New England in livestock production. The majority of food animal producers in Vermont are classified as small producers (fewer than 950 animal units). Approximately 200,000 cattle, 5,000 hogs, and 10,000 lambs are marketed for slaughter from farms in Vermont each year. Four egg farms in Vermont produce approximately 85,000 eggs per day, and a small number of turkey farms produce about 20,000 turkeys per year for slaughter. However, dairy farming is the economic leader for Vermont agricultural income. Dairy products account for approximately 80 percent of total farm income in Vermont. The broad goal of this initiative is to promote awareness of issues involving food safety among all individuals involved in food animal production, transport, marketing, and processing in Vermont. The program will carry out educational outreach to dairy producers in Vermont by developing intensive training to a small number of producers and written educational materials distributed to a large number of dairy producers. The project will demonstrate quality assurance and risk assessment plans on dairy farms in Vermont, focusing on animal health, pathogen reduction, antibiotic usage, and health and treatment recordkeeping on dairy farms. In anticipation of the adoption of mandatory national program standards under FDA's egg safety action plan, the project will develop on-farm risk assessments and individualized flock plan for Salmonellae risk reduction on the four egg production farms in Vermont. Food safety issues will also be discussed in meetings of the Vermont Cattle Health and Quality Assurance Committee and the Vermont Dairy Beef Advisory Committee. The focus is to encourage open lines of communication among all interested parties.

Wisconsin Description:  The Wisconsin project for animal production food safety begins with the training of regulatory veterinarians to develop a trained workforce capable of training private veterinarians, producers and small slaughter plant personnel. The regulatory field force will also assist in developing HACCP-compatible partnerships and expand the farm to table concept. The Division of Animal Health will work with private veterinarians, who comprise the essential element in developing an active, effective and successful program. It will be the private practitioner’s responsibility to develop the needed partnerships between producers, slaughter plants, laboratory and regulatory personnel. The program will rely on the veterinarian’s expertise in sampling, laboratory testing, and interpretation. The Division of Animal Health will participate with the Division of Food Safety in offering a joint program to explain the HACCP-compatible program to small slaughter plants throughout the state. The Division of Food Safety administers the HACCP program in small slaughter plants in Wisconsin. All state-inspected plants are currently participating in the HACCP program. This training would explain the on-farm HACCP compatible principles to small plant operators and their role. In addition, the Division of Animal Health will work jointly with industry, the Division of Food Safety, FDA and FSIS to develop progressive enforcement statutes, rules and policies pertaining to on farm food safety and HACCP-compatible programs. This will require multiple meetings throughout the state. The Department utilizes a progressive enforcement strategy involving education, counseling, written warning and civil and criminal forfeiture.
