Call for Participation in Livestock Data Interchange Standards Community Group

W3C has launched the Livestock Data Interchange Standards Community Group

A group of dairy and sheep/beef organisations in New Zealand have agreed to collaborate on standardising the interchange of data about farm animals (livestock) and the management, health, and production information that is recorded for these animals.

There are reasons why it is timely for the New Zealand dairy industry in particular to work on these problems, but we intend the work to support multiple species and to draw on previous international work and be relevant for use internationally.

In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account.

This group was originally proposed on 2013-02-28 by Andrew Cooke. The following people supported its creation: Andrew Cooke, Mark Johnstone, Ben Martin, Ton Bleijenberg, Robin Berjon, Marcos Caceres.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
