Approval of Permanent Identifiers - New South Wales

Description

If you are own or intend to own livestock, you may be required to attach a permanent identifier to your stock. Livestock includes cattle, sheep, pigs and goats. A stock identifier, for example a brand or earmark, must not be attached to stock unless it is approved by the Agency or is a National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) accredited tag or device.

You must ensure that your stock has an identifier:

  • before your livestock leaves your property whether or not that property is the one on which it was born (for example, you may be selling the livestock)
  • on arrival of the livestock in NSW
  • if directed to do so by an inspector.

Brands or earmarks are supplied by the Agency, the district registrar, or an authorised person as authorised by the Act.

Please consult your regional office for more information.
