CWG Accomplishments Since 2005

• Established a web site: www.camelidid.org

• Web site contains a generic Power Point file

for use by any camelid group, explaining NAIS

• Issues press releases

• Conducted owner survey Spring 2006 to

determine current use and preference of method of

ID in camelids

Camelid ID WG


Slide6 l.jpg

Industry Survey – Major Findings

Method of ID:

• 67.5% responding have at least one animal identified with a microchip

• 93% prefer to use this method over any other in future

Implant Site:

• 61% currently use base of either ear, many other locations also used

• 57% prefer base of left ear for recommended site

Movement Tracking:

• 50% say not enough detail to make decision on tracking entity

• 33% willing to spend less than $1 over animal’s life

CWG Recommendation to USDA

#1. For participation in the NAIS, the Camelid ID Working Group (CWG) recommends the implanted microchip as the preferred method for identification of camelids.

(approved by industry 8/18/06)

• Based upon current Registry statistics

~50% registered alpacas microchipped

~10% registered llamas microchipped

• Preferred method per industry survey (93%)


Slide8 l.jpg

Future Tasks

Three Subcommittees established:

• Specifications on implanted microchips

• Details on movement tracking

• Camelid epidemiology

• Conditions for industry participation:

* Grandfathering in of existing chips

* Confidentiality of data

* Minimal cost to producers


Slide9 l.jpg

Implanted Microchip - Details

• Insertion site(s) to be used?

• Chip frequency to be used? Move to ISO?

• Universal scanner availability is critical

• Phase-in timeline if move to ISO?

• Determine what data element to use for AIN

Alpacas Magazine


Slide10 l.jpg

Movement Tracking - Details

• Determine reportable vs recordable events

• When to report and to whom?

• Can registries track for that species?

• What role might show associations have?

Industry Concerns with NAIS

  • • Cost to producers for both identification and tracking

  • • Increase in number of rescue animals?

  • • Confidentiality of

  • information

  • • Reduce the level of

  • interest in owning

  • camelids?

  • Regulation of industry
