*BOAH validates swine premises by utilizing county parcel records and global reference data to assure the premises address is the 911 location of the hogs. We pinpoint geo-coordinates on the verified farm location, update animal owner and premises owner information, identify any affiliation with an integrator or animal health management company, categorize the production type and site capacity, and create barcodes for the producer. BOAH's goal is to accurately link the correct 911 location, to the correct hogs and correct owner information 100% of the time.
