What happens if cattle lose their NLIS device in transit?

0

Requirements depend on where cattle are moving to: • Saleyards – must be re-tagged with a saleyard post-breeder tag and where possible linked back to property of consignment. If the original tag identification number is known and can be linked to the new tag, the animal will retain its whole-of-life traceability. If the original NLIS ID number is not known, any animal with lifetime traceability will lose whole-of-life traceability. Cattle for slaughter without devices consigned from a saleyard must be identified with a post breeder device of the saleyard´s PIC. • Slaughter (direct) – will be accompanied by an NVD but will not retain their whole-of-life traceability status. Re-tagging will not occur. • Property to Property (includes private sale) – if the NLIS ID or RFID is known, it may be possible to link the old and new tags and maintain traceability. If a number is not known, a post-breeder tag for the new property should be applied prior to further movement.
