Do you keep livestock on your rural block or in your backyard?
If yes, you need to register for a Property identification code (PIC). A PIC is a free registration code that identifies the property where your livestock is kept.
Livestock includes alpacas, buffalo, camels, cattle, deer, goats, horses (including donkeys & mules), llamas, pigs, sheep, beehives, pigeons, and poultry (includes chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, guinea fowl etc), under the Livestock Act and Regulations.
Help keep your livestock safe in the event of a disease outbreak, bushfire or animal emergency, and register TODAY!
Registering for a PIC is easy and free, register online.
