Animal Disease Traceability
Emerging health issues, natural disasters, and theft are major concerns when it comes to protecting your livestock. Premises registration and traceability are valuable resources when it comes to safeguarding the health and safety of your livestock, poultry, or equine. This system is designed to help producers and animal health officials respond quickly and effectively to animal disease events and natural disasters in the United States.
Obtaining a Premises Registration Number (PIN) is the first step. A premises is a location where the animals are handled, managed, or housed. Choosing to register your premises puts you at the forefront of controlling and preventing the spread of diseases that could possibly affect your horses and/or livestock. In South Carolina, you can register your premises by filling out a form or by calling the State Veterinarian's office at 803-726-7812.
