Protecting Your Families, Your Pets and Your Livestock
As an agriculture producer that owns livestock, you must have a Premises Identification (PID)account that identifies your location(s) and the livestock you have there. The PID system is an important tool in identifying at risk livestock
during an emergency and notifying the owner or manager registered in the system. That is why it is so important to keep your information in the PID system current.
In any emergency situation that affects animal health or safety, having animal locations and other key information in one system is critical for quick, accurate and cost-effective emergency response.
The traceability system includes Premises Identification together with Animal Identification and Animal Movement which together determine where animals are, where they have been and what other animals they have come into contact with.
