NSW is currently transitioning to mandatory individual electronic identification for sheep and goats.
In September 2022, all agricultural ministers in Australia agreed to work towards mandatory implementation of sheep and goat eIDs nation-wide by 1 January 2025.
NSW DPI and representatives from sectors across the sheep and goat industries have worked together closely to develop an implementation plan for mandatory sheep and goat eID’s in NSW. All representatives sit on the NSW eID Sheep and Goat Reference Group.
The $38 million NSW Sheep and Goat eID Infrastructure Rebate Scheme will soon be open.
