As for the project on recording and traceability, possible systems on tracing the origin of agricultural products will be studied and tested using block chain technology. The project on animal identification and registration system will be implemented in four soums of central Uvurkhangai province. The work to identify and register a total of 190 thousand livestock in the soums is to be done between June 2019 and February 2020 in partnership with a local meat factory.
