Premises identification is the assignment of a randomly generated, unique identification number to a physical land location referred to as a premises location allocator identification number or premises identification number (PLA ID or PID). The Canadian Cattle Identification Agency (CCIA) strongly encourages every producer to obtain a PLA ID or PID number by reporting the legal land description (LLD) of their primary premises (home quarter or operation) and record it in the Canadian Livestock Tracking System (CLTS).
