ARGENTINA GENETICS IS TRACKING, HEALTH AND SAFETY HEALTH PRODUCTION
To achieve always the same quality meat, it takes consistency and that can only be achieved with genetics.
Food quality and nutrition of beef, makes it one of the foods most demanded by the Argentines and most demanding markets in the world, not to mention the nutritional importance and responsibility on children.
Genetics is an information technology, identification of individuals and their offspring, is a feature that complements and ensures the traceability process, this being a requirement of global markets and also confirms and ensures the health safety of origin, this is one of the main benefits of veal produced by genetic programs, Through semen, embryos and breeding, which since its origination process are checked, vaccinated and tested under the most demanding health programs, with international standards.
In this section of the OIE, we can analyze 3 concepts
OIE, One World, One Health
A) SAFETY HEALTH: HOW TO START SENDING FOOD SAFETY
It has long been known that 60% of known infectious human diseases are of animal origin (domestic or wild animals), like 75% of emerging human diseases and 80% of pathogens that can be used for bioterrorism . We also know that regular feeding of the people with noble proteins derived from milk, egg or meat is vital, and that its absence is a public health problem.
â€¢ Health Safety: Ensure that you eliminate or control all the factors, elements or agents in foods that minimize risks to consumer health.
â€¢ Safety Nutrition: Influence through the regulation of food composition in promoting health and preventing deficiency-related diseases and / or excess nutrients.
An estimated three million people in the developed and developing countries die each year from diseases transmitted by food and water, and many millions more become ill.
FAO aims to promote food safety and prevent foodborne diseases, protecting consumers and promoting fair practices in food trade through the adoption of the Codex Alimentarius standards.
B) HEALTH OF PRODUCTION: BIOACONDICIONADO ANIMAL / FOOD SECURITY
According to some assessments, global production losses due to diseases that affect animals for consumption exceed the 20%, it follows that even animal diseases not transmissible to humans could cause serious public health problems for the hardships and shortcomings that may entail.
C) HEALTH TRACKING to ensure quality products and HUMAN CONSUMPTION
Not only must avoid production losses or kill the animal, but also and should maximize production in order to offer more protein to the world a better price, keeping the gain from increased production and not by their scarcity in the offer.
In this process of health and production is needed and valued by consumers HEALTH TRACKING, to control the indiscriminate and unauthorized use of antibiotics and hormones, dangerous for human health.
“Food security exists when all people at all times have physical and economic access to sufficient safe and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for food to lead active and healthy.”
(World Food Summit, 1996)
For these reasons, genetic programs, which take place in the country, apart from improving the quality already achieved, complement and synergize and facilitate livestock production, project and ensure, in future, the entry of Argentine beef in the world , ensuring all livestock producers a better price.
