National Premise ID

Premise ID is a national program, however each state is responsible for implementing premise identifiication for locations within it borders. Premises are locations where livestock are handled, managed, housed or processed.

Identifying a premise involves obtaining a seven character alpha-numberic registration number for the farm, or location where livestock are handled or managed. Signing up can be accomplished through your states department of ag web site or by contacting them via mail.

Information needed to register includes contact person's name, address, phone number, and physical address and type of species on the site. Information like size of operation, numbers of animals, and breed types are not requested or needed.
