The Livestock Data Interchange Standards Community Group has been proposed by Andrew Cooke:
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.
You are invited to support the creation of this group. Once the group has a total of five supporters, W3C launch the group and people can join to begin work.
In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account.
If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on firstname.lastname@example.org
