Interstate Livestock Movement – Deer
There are no specific identification requirements.
All deer must be free of Notifiable diseases. Diseased deer may only enter Victoria under licence, usually only direct for slaughter at an abattoir. In some limited circumstances a licence to introduce the animals to another Victorian property may be granted. Licences are issued by Animal Biosecurity and Welfare, Bendigo, DEDJTR.
