Update this information each time you use this presentation

animal id is evolving rapidly
Animal ID is evolving rapidly
  • Animal ID is about:
    • Health monitoring
    • Disease containment
    • Performance tracking, e.g. testing the economics of health management techniques
    • Feedlot performance data, e.g. increased profitability when marketing individual animals
    • Inventory tracking
    • Genetic program management
animal id is evolving in state
Animal ID is evolving in [State]
  • [State] is also administering the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) at the State level

Insert examples here about how animal ID is evolving in your State

the national animal identification system nais
The National Animal Identification System (NAIS)…
  • Is…a Federal-State-industry partnership
  • Is…designed to help you, the livestock/poultry producer, respond to and minimize the impact of a disease outbreak or other animal health event
  • Is…a modern, streamlined information system that consists of three components
slide5
NAIS…
  • Is not…mandated at the Federal level
  • Is not…a mechanism for identifying and tracking all livestock or poultry in the United States
  • Is not…a system for tracking household pets
  • Is not…an “All or Nothing” approach
    • Enrollment in the first component of NAIS does not require producers to enroll in the other two components
why is nais needed
Why is NAIS needed?
  • Current animal identification programs:
    • Are not uniform
    • Are not integrated
    • Do not account for the comprehensive list of species and diseases
    • Do not incorporate available technologies that increase data management efficiency

Insert reasons why your State specifically needs NAIS

nais benefits
NAIS benefits
  • Protect your premises and your livelihood.
    • Your premises location is critical to containing a disease outbreak or other animal health event in your area. NAIS premises registration helps animal health officials locate and inform you as quickly as possible.
  • Reduce hardships caused by a disease outbreak or other animal health event in your community.
    • NAIS premises registration helps your community to pull together and respond to a disease outbreak or other animal health event. Rapid response helps to isolate affected animals and limit movement from affected premises.
  • Protect your income.
    • NAIS can help quickly define which regions of our country are, and are not, affected by a disease outbreak or other animal health event – keeping markets open for unaffected producers and preventing unnecessary movement restrictions.
    • NAIS ensures domestic markets are open to U.S. producers and international markets trust U.S. exports.

Premises Registration

Animal Identification

Animal Tracing

premises registration
Premises registration
  • Opens the lines of communication between livestock and poultry producers and animal health officials
  • Supports awareness of animals' location for rapid, accurate, cost-effective disease response
  • Ensures producers will be notified of a disease outbreak or other animal health event so they can take measures to protect their animals
  • Is administered by State and Tribal authorities

Premises Registration

Animal Identification

Animal Tracing

Include whether premises registration is mandatory or voluntary in your State and the number and percentage of premises registered

animal identification
Animal identification
  • Provides a uniform identification system for all animals
  • Assigns a unique Animal Identification Number (AIN) to each animal (or group of animals) that links them to premises of origin
  • Can be leveraged to support additional objectives such as herd/flock management, genetic improvement, and marketing
  • Requires the purchase of an AIN device
    • You can select from a variety of AIN devices to meet your operation’s unique needs

Premises Registration

Animal Identification

Animal Tracing

animal tracing
Animal tracing
  • Is under development by States and private industry
  • Allows animal health officials to view information on animal movement
    • Reports on where your animals have been
    • Reports on what other animals have come into contact with yours
  • Ensures producers receive accurate information during a disease outbreak or other animal health event

NAIS myths NAIS facts

NAIS myths versus facts

Federal law protects individuals’ private information and confidential business information from disclosure

Personal data will be released to additional government agencies

Producer information is only accessed when a disease outbreak or other animal health event occurs

USDA will use producer information to conduct surveillance of premises and animals

nais myths nais facts1
NAIS myths NAIS facts

NAIS myths versus facts

Individual identification is not necessary for animals that are raised in and remain as a group through production

All animals, regardless of whether or not they were raised in groups, must be identified individually

Participating in NAIS does not mean you will be held accountable for a disease outbreak or other animal health event

Producers that participate in NAIS will be held liable if their animals spread animal disease

premises registration information
Premises registration information
  • When registering your premises, you will be asked to provide the following information:
    • Name of the premises
    • Appropriate contact person
    • Street address/city/state/zip code for the premises
    • Contact phone number
    • Operation type (production unit, market, exhibition, slaughter plant, etc.)
    • Alternative phone numbers
