Secure Food Supply / Biosecurity
Protecting your farm or ranch with an enhanced biosecurity plan through the Secure Food Supply System can help ensure your farm is protected for the next generation. In the event of a disease outbreak involving highly contagious viruses, state and federal officials will immediately limit livestock movement to control disease spread.
Producers with a Secure Food Supply Plan will be better positioned to move animals under a movement permit and maintain business continuity within their industries.

Federal Premises ID Registration
The first step in developing a biosecurity plan for your farm is to register for a federal premises ID number (PIN). You can do so by clicking the link above to register with an online form, or by calling the Missouri Department of Agriculture Animal Health Division at (573) 751-3377.
The Missouri Department of Agriculture is accepting free and voluntary registration of premises in the state.
If you have already registered for a PIN in the state of Missouri, but have forgotten the number, or need to update information pertaining to the premises, call MDA at (573) 751-3377.
A PIN is a unique code permanently assigned to a single physical location. This number can be assigned to locations where animals are born, managed, marketed or exhibited. Allied agricultural operations and non-producer participants can also register for PINs.
PIN registration is administered by the state of Missouri and allows animal health officials to quickly and precisely identify where animals are located in the event of an animal health or food safety emergency. Information gathered through premises registration will be used solely for animal health purposes. This critical data will provide animal health officials with necessary contact information in case of a serious disease concern.
The Missouri State Fair does not require a premises ID number to show or exhibit livestock.
