Cattle producers urged to get premises identification number

The Canadian Cattle Identification Agency is urging Alberta livestock producers to prepare for new livestock traceability regulations that once enacted will require them to have a valid, premises identification (PID) number.

A producer can call Alberta’s PID registry at 310-FARM with a legal land description to confirm or acquire a PID, or contact a field or client services rep from the agency at 1-877-909-2333 or [email protected] to ensure their PID is entered into the Canadian Livestock Tracking System database.

The cattle ID agency also offers complimentary, one-on-one training, templates, videos and tools.
