Stock identification

Local Land Services is a key partner in Australia's National Livestock Identification System (NLIS). We also allocate Property Identification Codes (PICs) and maintain PICs across NSW in a state register.

We administer other non-compulsory forms of stock identification such as brands and earmarks, which play a traditional role in identifying stock ownership and reducing stock theft.

Moving stock

All stock movements must be accompanied by the appropriate documentation and meet the necessary NLIS requirements to ensure stock activity is monitored to help in the tracing of disease.
