3 Million in Cooperative Agreements to States and Tribes Nov 12, 2005
On Wednesday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) announced it will award $3 million in cooperative agreements to states and tribes for conducting research to develop or test potential solutions for animal identification and automated data collection in support of the National Animal Identification System (NAIS).

Applicants are encouraged to propose research or field-trial projects to:
- enhance the effectiveness of collecting animal animal-identification data in typical production, market and abattoir environments;
establish identity validation when official identification devices are lost, removed or malfunction;

- conduct economic assessments of animal-identification systems and technologies in typical production, market and abattoir environments; and

- evaluate emerging animal-identification technologies with advanced data-collection systems to ascertain the adaptability of the technology for use in NAIS.

The deadline for application is Dec. 30, 2005. For complete details and an application form, log on to: http://www.aphis.usda.gov/mrpbs/fmd/agreements_announcements.html.

More Partners with the USDA to register your Premises
IDAIRY receives $1 million from the USDA to move forward registering premises in the dairy industry
More on IDairy  http://www.idairy.org/    IDairy consists of six organizations that serve thousands of dairy farmers. We have formed this coalition because we all agree that our industry will be best served when all dairy operations, and ultimately, all dairy cows, are identified in a national central database.
Who is IDAIRY? http://www.idairy.org/who.html   Holstein Association USA, Inc.,National Association of Animal Breeders (NAAB),  National Dairy Herd Information Association (NDHIA) , The National Milk Producers Federation , The Dairy Calf and Heifer Association (DCHA), American Jersey Cattle Association

USDA is making $400,000 available to the U.S. Pork industry to assist with premises registration for the National Animal Identification System (NAIS), the main goal of which is the ability to trace back animals to their farm of origin within 48 hours in case of an animal disease. The funds will be used by the National Pork Board to hire regional swine identification coordinators who will work with state pork producer associations and state ID coordinators to encourage producers to get their premises registered in their state. This is the beginning of a year-long push by the Pork Board and NPPC to have 100 percent of swine producers’ premises registered by Dec. 31, 2007. USDA and the Pork Board entered a cooperative agreement on premises registration. It was the first such agreement to be signed between the agency and a livestock industry organization in support of the NAIS. NPPC and the Pork Board formed an identification implementation task force made up of producers and other industry stakeholders to enhance the existing swine ID system, which was set up in 1988 and used successfully to eradicate pseudo-rabies from the commercial herd. The organizations have been urging all pork producers to register their premises by Dec. 31, 2007, and have called for a mandatory animal identification system for all relevant livestock species by Dec. 31, 2008. About 40 percent of swine premises already have been registered, and NPPC and the Pork Board are working diligently to get the remaining premises registered as soon as possible.

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
