Oz: NLIS Rebate Extends Until Cash Flow Snaps

25 June 2008

AUSTRALIA - The Queensland government have announced that a range of rebates designed to assist cattle owners meet National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) requirements have now been extended until the end of the year, or until the money runs out.

Allison Crook, DPI&F general manager (animal biosecurity), said the announcement was good news for producers and industry.

"NLIS is really important to Queensland, and DPI&F continues to do everything we can to support producers in meeting their new requirements," Ms Crook said.

"Although DPI&F has received numerous applications for NLIS rebates, we did not use up the entire budget, and have decided to extend the program so that more people can access the program."

"Even though this has been extended I encourage cattle owners to get in quick so they don´t miss out. The rebates will be made available until the end of 2008, or until all funds are used - which ever comes first," she said.

NLIS rebates are still available to cattle owners and producers, feedlot operators and live exporters.
