Stock Tag for Livestock Identification - Australian Capital Territory

Description

You may require approved stock tags if you breed, raise or manage livestock in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). If you own tagable stock, you can apply for a tag number for the stock. Stock includes any horse, cattle, sheep, alpaca, swine, goat or other declared animal. Tags may either be a label, mark or electronic device that is attached or placed on the stock, and are used for identifying that stock.

You must ensure that the tag you intend to use is an approved tag. Approved tags include:

  • An approved national livestock identification system (NLIS) device;
  • An approved mark; and
