Premises Identification (PID) Number: space

Flood, fire, inclement weather, and damage to farm infrastructure may result in risks to animal health and welfare including exposure to infectious diseases. While preserving the life of humans and animals is the priority, planning ahead can reduce unnecessary biosecurity risks to the herd. Consider alternate sources and arrangements for feed and water and housing animals in the event these items have been compromised.
