You will require this registration if you intend to operate a non-farming (supply chain) property where livestock is kept. A non-farming property is:
- an abattoir
- an export depot
- a transit depot
- a holding yard
- a pound
- a saleyard
- a show ground.
Once your application has been processed, you will be issued with a registration certificate and a Property Identification Code (PIC) card. You will not be issued with a brand or earmark.
The PIC allows you to transfer stock to and from your premises on the National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) database as required. It will also be required to purchase NLIS tags and devices to use in identifying cattle, buffalo, sheep or goats that are not correctly identified when on your premises.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
