PIC required for livestock sale
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.
