1 HVI Data Management

2 Permanent Bale Identification PBI

3 PBI Bale tagging system that identifies each U.S. cotton bale with a unique number that is traceable from the textile mill back to the gin.

4 PBI Tags Attached to all U.S. bales Inserted in samples removed from U.S. bales

5 PBI: The Link to USDA Classing Data “Tear off” sample PBI tag used to identify samples that are removed from the bale. PBI system enables easy access to USDA classing data for each bale individually.

6 Permanent Bale Identification PBI Started in 1997 PBI Program Overseen by USDA –Ensures specifications are met PBI Number Made up of 5-digit Gin Code & 7-digit Bale Number Barcode: Code 128 subset C 5 Year Cycle on Bale Numbers Required on all bales classed by USDA (100% of U.S. crop)

7 PBI Number Defined PBI #: Gin CodeGin Bale ID 96 = Classing Office Code 089 = Gin Number Classing Office Codes: Abilene, TX50Lubbock, TX70 Birmingham, AL13 Macon, GA07 Corpus Christi, TX60 Memphis, TN40 Dumas, AR30 Phoenix, AZ86 Florence, SC03Rayville, LA28 Lamesa, TX72Visalia, CA96
