Premise ID Barcode Labels

Premise ID Barcode Labels on ADRDL Submissions

Working together to enhance preparedness and capabilities

Premises ID Basics

What is it? A national seven-digit alphanumeric identifier for each farm site

Why is it important? This number does not change even if a site name or ownership changes In the event of a foreign animal or reportable disease outbreak or for use in producer-driven herd health management initiatives, the Premise ID would allow data to be linked within and between laboratories, databases, and area regional disease management tools. Premise ID is the foundation of area region disease control, FAD preparedness, and for producer participation in the continuity of business programs (Secure Pork) being developed for the US Pork Industry.

Why barcode labels? Reduce error and increase efficiency at both the submitter and lab entry levels
