Livestock workshop at Edenhope

Edenhope will host one of eight Agriculture Victoria workshops across the state to help sheep, goat and cattle producers in the use of a National Livestock Identification System, NLIS.

The workshops started in Rochester in late May and Edenhope’s is scheduled for June 23 at Edenhope Community Centre from 10am to 3pm.

Agriculture Victoria’s Kirstie Anderson said the workshops would take producers through 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.”

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

Participant numbers in workshops are limited and organisers have asked people to register online at agriculture
