Abstract

LOPES, Marcos Aurélio  and  SANTOS, Glauber dos. Main difficulties found by certifiers of bovine traceability. Ciênc. agrotec. [online]. 2007, vol.31, n.5, pp. 1552-1557. ISSN 1413-7054.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-70542007000500042.

This research had the aim of verifying the main difficulties found by the certifiers to trace bovines. It was prepared a qualitative semi-structured questionnaire containing 15 questions, 14 of multiple choice and an open one, which was sent to the 64 certifiers companies credenced by "Ministério da Agricultura Pecuária e Abastecimento"(MAPA). Only 40,68% (24) of them answered. The main difficulties found by them were: frequent change of rules, lack of farmers conscientiousness and keeping track of the moving animals. The biggest impediments found by the certifiers, in the bovine traceability are: the distrust of the farmers and the lack of government incentive.
