August 10, 2012-- The National Farmed Animal Health and Welfare Council (NFAHW) is conducting a survey on Anticipation and Agri-Intelligence. Agri-intelligence is a tool used by governments and industry to inform strategic decision making, and information gained in this survey will assist the NFAHW in developing advice on agri-intelligence and anticipation.
Agri-intelligence is considered the analysis of information sources such as media reports, laboratory data, disease outbreak surveillance and news bulletins affecting anticipation of a crisis. Equine Canada is a member of the NFAHW; the input of Equine Canada members will ensure the policies created as result of this survey will be representative of the Canadian equine industry. The survey can be found at the NFAHW website.
