The article offers information on a two-part proposal of Electronic Identification of Bovines (EID) inherited in Poland. It mentions that the first part refers to European Union-system of electronic identification for cattle by making an electronic form of ID whereas the second part eliminates the current requirement of approval for "voluntary labelling of beef" by national authorities.
