NY Launches Partnership to Support Animal Health and Traceability


The New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets and GlobalVetLink (GVL), the trusted name in digital compliance solutions for animal health, has announced a new partnership to further New York’s efforts to transition to digital CVIs (Certificates of Veterinary Inspection) for enhanced traceability. Through this strategic collaboration, large animal veterinarians in New York State will gain access to the GVL platform and create Production Animal CVIs with an origin in New York free of charge. By encouraging the utilization of these CVIs, New York sets a progressive example to other states in managing livestock health more effectively and promoting greater animal traceability and welfare. This transition will result in fewer errors and improved communication across all parties involved. Funding to support this project was provided to the Department through USDA’s Animal Disease Traceability program.

GlobalVetLink’s digital platform simplifies the management and issuance of CVIs. Using the GVL Compliance Assistant platform, New York veterinarians can issue electronic CVIs that streamline workflows, save time, and improve data accuracy and availability for state animal health officials. This partnership promises significant advantages for veterinarians, producers, and the industry.

State Agriculture Commissioner Richard A. Ball said, “GlobalVetLink has deep expertise in efficient digital solutions, veterinary regulations, and animal health management, and we’re excited that this partnership presents an incredible opportunity to facilitate communication, promote more robust animal health protocols, improve livestock traceability, and pave the way for more advancements in veterinary care. Thanks to funding from USDA, our work with GVL is a great opportunity for our New York producers and veterinarians to have better traceability through eCVI at no cost.”
