National Premises & Flock IDs
National Premises IDs are tied to the specific property. If you move, your ID does not move with you so you would need to reapply for a new premise ID number. National Premises IDs are for cattle, bison, swine, and only used for sheep and goats in lieu of an Arizona Flock ID if purchasing microchips.
Arizona Flock IDs are tied to animals. If you move, your ID moves with you as long as you are located in Arizona. Arizona Flock IDs are for sheep and goats only. Arizona Flock IDs are also referred to as Scrapie IDs. A flock ID is required for all sheep and goats to comply with state and federal identification requirements. Sheep and goats must be identified with your Arizona Flock ID number, by either a tattoo or a specially-made tamper-proof ear tag applied by you. To order your scrapie tags please refer to the order form below.
