Cattle producers urged to get premises identification number

Reading Time: < 1 minute

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.
