It is the responsibility of the stock owner to contain livestock within their property boundaries. The containment of livestock is imperative for the safety of the community and to reduce the spread of disease and infection. It also means that your animals are protected and maintained properly.

Management of Livestock:
  • Livestock is not permitted to be kept on premises within a townsite without Shire approval, and all livestock is to be registered and tagged with Australia's National Livestock Identification System (NLIS).
  • The NLIS is Australia’s system for the identification and traceability of cattle, sheep and goats. NLIS reflects Australia’s commitment to biosecurity and food safety and provides a competitive advantage in a global market.

Wandering Livestock:
  • These incidents pose a significant danger to the public travelling on roads and in most cases are preventable by the provision of sufficient, appropriate and well-maintained fences.
  • Rangers should be contacted for staying livestock that are on roads, as well as be in attendance to ensure roadways are safe and fencing issues are rectified.
