AGRICULTURE Victoria will continue holding practical, hands-on workshops across the state next month to assist sheep, goat and cattle producers in the use of the National Livestock Identification System.

The workshops commenced in late May at Rochester and are continuing throughout June at different locations across the state.

Agriculture Victoria EID specialist Kirstie Anderson said the workshops will take producers through a number of key aspects of using the system.

”The workshops are designed to step producers through practical aspects of using the NLIS and show them how to manage their NLIS requirements including keeping Property Identification Code (PIC) details up to date and how to complete a property-to-property (P2P) transfer on the system.

“Agriculture Victoria staff will be on hand to answer any questions about sheep, goat or cattle electronic identification requirements and their management on the database,” she said.

The NLIS is a lifetime traceability system for livestock and helps to protect the reputation of Victoria’s livestock industry as a supplier of ‘clean’ meat and dairy products for domestic and export markets.
