Get a Premises Identification number for your farm

Yukon farmers are encouraged to enroll in the Premises Identification and Traceability Program (PID). The program is a bridge between local farms and the National Livestock and Poultry Traceability System.

As a farmer, you:

  • enroll in the PID program for free;
  • will receive disease outbreak updates, or other livestock emergency updates, once enrolled; and
  • have to get a separate PID number for each individual lot.

You need a PID number when purchasing livestock or medication out of the territory. You also need a PID number to register in the Veterinary Services Program.

How to get a PID number

  1. Complete the Premises Identification (PID) application.
  2. Submit your application.
