Iowa Premises Identification Program
The Animal Disease Traceability Program is a national animal health program that is being developed by the USDA and state animal health agencies, in cooperation with industry. This program includes premises identification.
Premises Identification involves assigning a unique number to premises involved in animal agriculture. Allied agricultural operations and non-producer participants can also be assigned Premises Identification Numbers.
The Premises Identification will involve recording information such as addresses, names of contacts, the type of premises , and a contact phone number. This information will be maintained by IDALS and key pieces will be shared with the USDA to be available for animal disease tracing purposes.
At present time, obtaining a premises identification number is completely voluntary. Premises Identification is done at no cost to the producer.
