Welcome to the Premises Identification Program


Premises identification (PID) is one of the three pillars of traceability which links livestock and poultry to geographical locations, along with livestock identification and animal movement. The PID Program was established to plan for, control and prevent the spread of livestock diseases. It can also be used as an early warning system to notify producers of natural disasters such as a flood or fire that could affect their animals or operations.

If you own livestock, poultry or other animals as defined in Saskatchewan’s Premises Identification Regulations, and the animal is in your care and control, you need to obtain at least one PID number associated with a premises you own, rent or lease. If you are the operator of a commingling site (veterinary clinic, community pasture, abattoir), you are required to obtain a PID number.

New or existing PID numbers should be shared with livestock traceability administrators’ databases, such as Canadian Cattle Identification Agency (CCIA) and Pig Trace Canada.

For further information regarding the PID Program please see our FAQ document or contact the Agricultural Knowledge Center at 1-866-457-2377.
