Premises Registration Renewal Report

After weeks of preparation, the livestock premises renewal is in full swing. WLIC has hired on additional part time help to assist the large quantity of work that needs to be done. Notifications from DATCP were sent out to livestock owners a few weeks ago, while radio and media announcements were made even before that. Premises can be renewed by phone, fax, email, or online by the livestock owners themselves.
As of Friday April 18th, WLIC has renewed 4,810 current premises and registered 663 new premises since the beginning of the year. After the premises have been renewed or registered, a card letter is returned to the livestock owner showing that their information been updated for the next three years.
We are grateful for all those who have updated their information with us thus far! A system with proper trace back and trace forward capabilities provides timely response to minimize the economic impact in the event of an animal disease outbreak.
