Why Animal Identification, Why Now?

Registering your premises is the first step in the national animal identification system. All locations housing livestock must first be registered; each individual animal can be identified at a later time.


Because each state has its own agency which handles information about farm operations, we’ve created an easy-to-use form that will be accepted by any of the state agencies. All you have to do is download the form (you will need Adobe Acrobat to access the file), and then mail or fax it to IDairy. We will then forward it to the agency responsible for premises registration in your state.
