DEPARTMENT OF PRIMARY INDUSTRY AND FISHERIES BARKLY BEEF | page 14 www.dpif.nt.gov.au Biosecurity Updates Animal Biosecurity Branch Do you keep poultry, pigs, pigeons, sheep, goats, deer, horses, cattle, buffalo, camelids? It is mandatory for owners of an identifiable property or block to have a PIC registered for all livestock, including pets, and without exception. Livestock Regulations Section 32(1) states: The owner of an identifiable property must have a PIC registered for the property. An identifiable property is a property that keeps any of the following livestock: Alpacas, buffalo, camels, cattle, deer, goats, horses, llamas, pigs, poultry, pigeons, sheep. Property Identification Codes Why? The purpose of property identification is for tracing and controlling disease but also for locating properties/blocks and notifying owners quickly. In the event of disease being detected, it is absolutely crucial to identify properties/blocks in the surrounding area where livestock reside. This will enable the disease to be isolated and managed rapidly as well as a direct way of contacting livestock owners to keep them up to date of various situations. PIC registration is free of charge. Please complete the PIC registration form on our website at www.nt.gov.au/d/animalhealth, or contact the Regional Livestock Biosecurity Officer (RLBO) for assistance.
