Livestock travel and grazing permit - Paroo Shire Council - Queensland

Description

You will need a permit to move or graze livestock on public land. There are two permits which cover travelling and grazing livestock:

  • stock route travel permit
  • grazing (agistment) permit.

You will need a stock route travel permit to move stock on the stock route network. The stock route network is a series of roads where the movement of livestock is allowed. Camping and water reserves, pasture reserves, trucking reserves and government-controlled land can also form part of the stock route network.

You must apply for a stock route travel permit to move stock on:

  • stock routes
  • reserves for travelling stock
  • roads and other land under local government control
  • unallocated state land adjoining any of these listed land types.

You will need a grazing (agistment) permit to graze / agist stock on:

  • stock routes
  • reserves for travelling stock
  • roads and other land under local government control.

You will need to contact the council for a copy of their stock route network management plan and a list of their preferred agistment locations.

Livestock can include alpacas, asses, camels, cattle, donkeys, goats, horses, llamas, mules, sheep or vicunas.
