On January 18, 2005, the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services kicked off NCFarmID, a voluntary registration process for farms and animal premises in our state. NCFarmID is North Carolina’s voluntary premises registration for animal traceability . Through premises registration, a unique national and state identification number will be assigned to locations in North Carolina where animals are born, managed, marketed or exhibited.
Information gathered through registration will be used solely for animal health purposes. This critical data will provide animal health officials with necessary contact information in case of an animal health concern and help identify animals and premises that may have been affected.
