BC Poultry Premise Identification Initiative

  • Background
  • History of poultry database and identifying premises in 2004, 2005 AI
  • Moving Forward- Premise ID initiative
  • National Initiatives (CCIA/ CLIA/ traceability)
  • Benefits
  • Emergency preparedness has become an important initiative for poultry industry (past AI events in FV, media coverage AI around world)
  • Without a system in place to accurately map and identify poultry premises and barns in affected areas, emergency response would be ineffective and potential exists for much greater economic losses
  • Estimated 2004 AI outbreak cost BC Poultry Industry over $63 million, estimated gross economic cost of $380 million
  • A database of poultry premises was created during the 2004 AI for the Emergency Response Command Centre
  • Database: poultry premises, testing, contact information etc.
  • Took time to compile information as it was not previously available in 1 database
  • After the outbreak, database given back to 4 poultry boards to maintain with current information on all producers
  • 4 boards: Angela McKee became lead
  • Basic contact information recorded (address, phone, contact name etc)
  • 2005 AI event: database and how properties were identified needed to be improved

Moving Forward Premise ID Initiative
  • National Premise ID
  • Canadian Livestock Identification Agency (CLIA) - Mike Dexter
  • Canadian Cattle Identification Agency (CCIA) – Brett McConkey
  • Premises “geo-referenced” – can be mapped quickly
  • Contact information in central database
    • Traceability includes 3 main elements:
      • Animal identification
      • Premises identification
      • Movement tracking
  • CLIA developed national standards

Premise ID Initiative

BC Assessment Jurol / legal addressfor parcel

Parcel = Premise

Barns = Sub premises

National Premise ID



Premise ID Initiative

  • CCIA- Premise Location Allocator
  • Premise Attributes:
  • Legal land description / Jurol
  • Contact information
  • Type of Premise (Farm, barn, hatchery, rendering plant etc)
  • Location of barns (x,y) - orthophotos

Information secure

  • Access controlled
premise id initiative
Premise ID Initiative
  • Industry-led initiative (government supported)
  • Goals:
  • To accurately, efficiently and uniquely identify all regulated BC poultry premises and barns while working towards full chain traceability
  • To instill confidence in our stakeholders regarding our preparedness in a foreign animal disease situation
premise id initiative objectives
Premise ID Initiative- Objectives
  • To have a central database that contains accurate premise and barn identification and contact information for all regulated BC poultry premises and barns
  • To ensure the process and database is concurrent with national initiatives (CCIA/ CLIA)
  • To assign a national alpha-numeric ID to all premises and barns
  • To physically identify the premises and barns with highly visible signage with the national Premise ID
signage on barns
Signage on barns



premise id initiative1
Premise ID Initiative
  • BC Poultry Industry Biosecurity and Emergency Response Strategic Plan (2005-2007)
  • Goal 2: the BC poultry industry has an emergency response management plan in place to handle an infectious disease outbreak, by 2007
  • Requires all farms and other required locations to be included in a “database” by Dec 31, 2006

National Initiatives

  • Ontario / Quebec / Manitoba
  • National Hog Identification and Traceability System – once systems in place and functional, program will become mandatory in 2008

BC Poultry Premise ID Initiative

  • Want to pursue opportunities to include Specialty birds / backyard flocks
  • A complete poultry database is critical to reduce response time, key in limiting impacts of an animal disease outbreak
  • Only as good as the “weakest link”


  • Quicker mapping of quarantine area
  • First 24 hrs are the most important
  • Provides quick response to limit disease spread
  • Provides timely testing to move birds to market
  • Minimizes down time
  • Other emergencies- floods, water quality issues
