Registering Other Designated Animals on Your PIC

Land managers can add other designated animals to their existing Property Identification Code (PIC).

In addition to cows, sheep and horses, other designated animals include keeping goats, pigs, camels, bison, buffalo, deer, alpacas, llamas, donkeys, mules, beehives and more than 100 free range birds such as poultry, emus, ostriches or pigeons.

Anyone hosting sporting and show events such as a campdraft, pony club or horse races need to register as a RBE temporary holding facility too. 

RBE’s for keeping non-commercial animals and holding facilities are exempt of the $127.70 PIC fee, payable every three years on renewal. RBE (PIC) registration enables animals to be traced in the event of a disease outbreak or contamination incident.

Movement records are mandatory.
AgForce Policy - Marie Vitelli

A movement record must be recorded and stored for up to five years whenever any type of designated animal moves off the property or is received onto the property.

The signed hard copy, diary entry or electronic record must include date, location or PIC, destination, species, breed, description of animal, unique serial number, name of person making the record as well as the name and address of the person receiving the animal.

Other animals can be added by filling out page four of the Registrable Biosecurity Entity (RBE) form available on the Queensland Government Business and Industry portal under the agricultural industry tab and by selecting livestock or phone 13 25 23 for a posted form.
