Swine working Group recommendations to the USDA....I didn't go through the whole thing but this is the first I have seen on
the Swine Working group.
Swine Movement Reporting Requirements
All interstate movements of swine and semen must be reported either via a certificate of
Veterinary inspection (CVI)8 for individually identified animals or an interstate movement
Report (IMR)9 for group/lot identified animals and conform to applicable state and federal
Regulations. The PINs of the shipping and receiving premises must be recorded on the CVI or
This means that any owners of swine who intend to move on interstate travel must have a Premises Identification number...
Bookend approach is being used via 2 opposing ends.
Working groups that are now posted on the USDA site are Swine,Camelid,Cattle,Goat,Equine,Sheep,

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
