PIC re­quired for live­stock sale

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - FARM SCENE -

This in­cludes when live­stock are of­fered free of charge, or for barter, or for ex­change of money.

Where 50 or fewer poul­try are kept on a prop­erty, there is no need to ap­ply for a PIC or in­clude a PIC in the ad­ver­tise­ment.

Where more than 50 poul­try are kept on a prop­erty, a PIC is re­quired, and it must be in­cluded in the ad­vert, even if only one or two poul­try are be­ing ad­ver­tised at a time.

In the cases where a live­stock agent is in­volved in the sale, with their name and con­tact de­tails ap­pear­ing the ad­ver­tise­ment, a PIC is not re­quired.

PICs en­sure Vic­to­ria’s trace­abil­ity, through en­sur­ing that the move­ments of live­stock are recorded which is cru­cial in the event of a dis­ease out­break or con­tam­i­na­tion.
