Sheep and Goat Individual Electronic Identification

NSW is currently transitioning to mandatory individual electronic identification for sheep and goats.

Individual electronic identification (eID) for sheep and goats is an enhancement to the existing mob-based system as part of the National Livestock Identification System (NLIS).

If you have questions not covered on this website, please email the DPI Sheep and Goat Traceability Team at sheepgoateid@dpi.nsw.gov.au
