If you have livestock, poultry or bees on your farm, you will want to register for a “PID” or Premises ID.  You can apply online for an ID number and it does not cost you anything.  You need a PID number to:

  • buy medication at retail outlets
  • sell livestock at auction markets
  • apply for AB grants

This is the information page: https://www.alberta.ca/register-with-the-animal-premises-identification-program.aspx

This is an FAQ: https://www1.agric.gov.ab.ca/$Department/deptdocs.nsf/all/trace12895/$FILE/Alberta%E2%80%99sLivestockandPoultryTraceability.pdf

Once you register and indicate the animals that you have, you will receive information about:

  • any relevant diseases in your area
  • natural disasters that could affect you

If you know about diseases ahead of time, you can ramp up your bio-security.  If you are warned about disasters, you can put your emergency plans into place faster.
