The Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) will help sheep producers who attend Wagin Woolorama ensure their stock movements are recorded correctly.
Producers who buy sheep privately, agist or display sheep at shows can take their National Vendor Declarations or waybills to the DAFWA display for a demonstration of how to record stock movements on the National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) database.
DAFWA Animal Product Integrity manager Peter Gray said recording sheep movements on the NLIS database had been mandatory since 2010 but some sheep producers were still unsure of the process.
