Victoria NLIS Tags

NLIS Cattle was introduced in NSW on 1 July 2004. NLIS (Sheep and Goats) was introduced on 1 January 2006 and in NSW is a mob based system. NLIS (Sheep and Goats) uses a combination of visually readable ear tags printed with a Property Identification Code (PIC), an NLIS movement document which accompanies every mob of sheep or goats when they move, and the recording of all movements of sheep and goats in the NLIS database, to provide traceability.

Since 2018 electronic NLIS (sheep) tags of any colour and NLIS cattle tags should be purchased directly from the Agriculture Victoria here: Agriculture Victoria NLIS RFID Sheeptags (for more info download the info PDF HERE)
