Each state is different in what is required regarding livestock movement, however there should be a post-sale summary and an NVD provided to transporters prior to starting the movement.
All NVDs have a field to record the destination property identification code (PIC) but it is important to note that it is only mandatory to fill in this field in Tasmania and Western Australia for all species. Outside of these states, it is not mandatory to record the destination PIC on the NVD, but a physical location address of the livestock’s destination is required. The policy regarding mandatory or voluntary PICs on the NVD is a decision for each state and territory.
While the sheep NVD has a provision for producer to advise when livestock last had access to food and water, the NVD for cattle does not. Integrity Systems Company (ISC) does not make decisions on questions included on the NVD nor when to make changes. This is the collective responsibility of industry representative bodies, who have decided that time off feed and water information for cattle does not need to be collected at present. However, if you have a need to record it, there are sections on the Animal Health Declaration of the NVD where additional information can be documented. Alternatively, extra information can be attached to either document. The NVD should be complete before it is handed to the transporter.
