LIMA, Victor Muiños Barroso; BORNSTEIN, Cláudio Thomas  e  CUKIERMAN, Henrique Luiz. The Brazilian bovine traceability system - a critical appraisal.Traduzido porJeffrey Hoff. Estud.soc.agric. [online]. 2006, vol.2Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1413-0580.

This paper examines the creation of the Sisbov, launched to certify provenance, nutritional as well as sanitary aspects of Brazilian cattle production. Economic, social and political consequences, particularly in respect to the initial compulsory character of the regulations, are considered. The government will have greater control and more information, not only about the cattle herd, but also about the ranchers themselves. After a brief historical review of similar programs in France, with links to the "Mad Cow" Disease, the origins and initial objectives of Sisbov are examined. A connection is made with the development of Information Systems and the development of subcutaneous chips used to identify their bearers.
