Discounted eID tags for sheep and farmed goats

| Posted in

The South Australian Government is providing a $0.95 discount on electronic identification (eID) tags to bring the cost down for producers.

The discount agreement is with tag manufacturers directly and is in place from 1 January 2024 until 30 June 2025.

The discount applies to National Livestock Identification (NLIS) accredited eID tags for sheep and farmed goats that align to the year-of-birth colour system. Discounted 2024 (black) eID tags will be available from 1 January 2024 to 31 December 2024. Discounted 2025 (white) eID tags will be available from 1 January 2025 to 30 June 2025.

eID tags range in price, depending on the type and manufacturer. The discounted price should be available when ordering tags from rural and online retailers as well as directly from the manufacturer. This means producers do not need to complete an application form to receive the discount.

An active property identification code (PIC) registered with PIRSA must be provided when placing an order for discounted tags.

SA producers who purchased 2023 year of birth (sky blue) NLIS-accredited eID tags between 1 January 2023 and 31 December 2023 can apply for the eID Device Rebate (2023). Applications can be completed online via the Department for Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA) website and close 30 April 2024.
