Our Mission

Wisconsin Livestock Identification Consortium (WLIC) is a private non-profit organization working to protect animal health and prevent the spread of disease through livestock and premises identification and traceability.

WLIC Protects Wisconsin. We:

  • Host and maintain the state premises ID database.
  • Provide the 'insurance' to protect the food supply chain and all livestock raised in Wisconsin.
  • Promote the 'Wisconsin-Origin' livestock label.
  • Share vital information in the case of disease outbreak.
  • Sponsor educational programs about traceability.
  • Support the Wisconsin State Fair and County Fairs through the DNA Fair Program.
  • Provide information and support on best safety practices.
  • Foster cooperation and understanding across all agriculture industries.

WLIC in Action:

  • In 2013, WLIC helped keep the swine industry safe after the outbreak of PEDv.
  • In 2015, WLIC helped keep the poultry industry safe after the Avian Flu outbreak.
