The NVD records various information, including the address and property identification code (PIC) for the place of origin, whether or not the stock were bred at the place of origin and the address and property identification code for the destination. Information gathered via the NVD is then recorded onto the National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) to ensure lifetime identification and traceability of livestock.
