  1. The Role of Animal Identification An Introduction to the National Animal Identification System Insert Presenter’s Name Insert Date Insert Name of Meeting or Association Insert City and State Update this information each time you use this presentation

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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. Insert benefits specific to your State

  8. NAIS components 1 2 3 Premises Registration Animal Identification Animal Tracing

  9. 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 1 2 3 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

  10. 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 1 2 3 Premises Registration Animal Identification Animal Tracing

  11. 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 1 2 3 Premises Registration Animal Identification Animal Tracing

  12. 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

  13. 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

  14. 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 Insert additional information your State requests

  15. I’m ready to register my premises. What do I do now? • Visit (insert web address here) • Register online OR • Print forms and send them to: If your State does not have online registration, delete this Insert address where forms should be sent Add any other means of registration in your State

  16. Thank you for attending! • NAIS is only as good as the people who participate in it! • Questions? • Comments? • Concerns? • Suggestions? • For additional information about NAIS in (insert state) see Insert details about where attendees can find additional information (Web sites, etc.)
