Abstract Tracing movements could assist the implementation of bio-containment measures during a disease outbreak. To evaluate the potential for implementing a tracing system for a poultry supply chain in northern Vietnam, a four-month longitudinal study was conducted to identify marketing practices associated with poultry traceability. Poultry sold in batches were traced between farms and markets, and their traceability was assessed upon market arrival. A total of 315 batches were released from the farms; 37% arrived at a market, from which 57.3% were ‘traceable’. The results of the multivariable analysis showed that traceability was associated with farms operating through no more than two traders (Odds ratio [OR] = 5.97, 95% CI 1.15–30.92) and batches brought to the market on the day of purchase (OR = 4.05, 95% CI 1.23–13.27). No specific incentives were provided to farmers or traders. Results suggest that there is potential for implementing a poultry traceability scheme, although the tracing methodology should be refined.
