Leading in cattle identification
The NLIS is Australia's system to provide prompt and accurate traceability in the event of a disease outbreak or food safety incident. NLIS provides whole of life traceability, starting at the property of birth through to slaughter at a processing plant. Victoria is leading the world in this best practice system.

Producers receiving NLIS identified cattle directly from another property are legally required to record the movement on the NLIS database. Some transport services are equipped to offer this as a service to producers. Recording property to property movements maintains lifetime traceability and helps add value to your business.
