All livestock owners within Western Australia must be registered and have their stock identified in accordance with regulations. If you keep livestock, you are required to register, whether they are kept as pets or for commercial purposes.
The following animals are considered livestock:
- horses (ponies, donkeys, hybrids)
- South American camelids (alpaca, llama, vicuna)
- ostrich (Ostrich owners only need to register if they own other types of livestock, or if they wish to identify their ostriches with a registered identifier).
Once your application has been processed, you will be issued with a registration certificate and property identification code (PIC) card. The PIC card will have your registered identifiers (stock brand, earmark and pig tattoo), your brand expiry date and PIC for the properties nominated as where you will run your stock.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
