Video dated Mar 17, 2010, listen to it very carefully! Old NAIS New Animal Disease Traceability... Mandatory...
USDA says the new program is not a mandatory program except for animals that travel to a different State from where
they were born.
Think about that. With that little caveat, that basically means the program is a mandatory program for a whole lot of livestock
in the United States.
Additionally, the program is mandatory not only for premise registration but for the actual tracking of the animal. Here
is the real kicker. State governments will be tasked with keeping track of the livestock under the new system.

Premises Registration will be an "Official" USDA unique seven Character identifier.
In the New User Guide it states on Page 22:
The premises identification number (PIN) is assigned permanently to a geophysical location.
If an owner or entity sells his/her farm, the next operators of the premises use the original premises identification number
that had been assigned to that location. If the seller buys a new location to build a new operation that never had livestock,
he/she would register that location and obtain a new premises identification number (PIN).
Premises Identification = Encumbrance
