From the Capital Press : 10-15-06
The Washington State Department of Agriculture has sent letters to several
livestock organizations in the state, asking for help in registering private
land where animals are raised,
part of an animal identification system
that's being considered.

In the letters,
the WSDA offers to pay the organization $10 for each
premises registration it obtains by the end of the year
. Registering is free
and voluntary for landowners, but participation in the program has been

The letters are part of a WSDA campaign to boost participation in the
program, Chris Spaulding, an animal identification specialist with the
department in Olympia, said in a telephone interview.

The money to pay the groups for the registrations comes from a $141,000
grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to help the state with an
intensive outreach project supporting animal identification efforts
. The
grant is also earmarked for 4-H, FFA, Cooperative Extension and other
education about the proposed National Animal Identification System, known as

Other states are using a similar tactic to boost enrollments, Spaulding
said. And the USDA may also give it a try.

Spaulding declined to discuss premises registration targets, saying earlier
estimates of the number of premises in the state may have been overstated.
Last month Spaulding told Capital Press that out of an estimated 12,000
cattle premises in Washington, about 1,000 had been registered, or about 8
percent. The WSDA had hoped 25 percent of the landowners would sign up by
January 2007.

Since then, premises registrations are up about 10 percent, Spaulding said.

Premises registration is the first step in a plan that aims to register
private land where animals are located, and then to identify and track
movement of the animals

The Washington State Dairy Federation will participate in the program to
help the WSDA register premises, said Jay Gordon, a dairy producer and
executive director of the federation in Elma.

Jack Field, executive vice president of the Washington Cattlemen's
Association, said the WCA executive committee would likely discuss the
WSDA's offer at its Oct. 17 meeting.

At least one organization, the Cattle Producers of Washington, has turned
down the WSDA offer.

"It is very discouraging that WSDA is failing to listen to its constituency
on this issue and seems intent on forging ahead with a program that is so
widely opposed by cattle producers,
" Lee Engelhardt, a Moses Lake cow-calf
producer and CPoW president, said in an news release.

Engelhardt said producers need to know more about the proposed program and
how it will be managed, as well as its costs and benefits.
Why is the USDA hiding the program from the public? Why is the media not reporting of this program?

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
