Obtain a PIC and order tags
State/Territory NLIS authorities issue a unique Property Identification Code (PIC) to identify parcels of land used for agricultural purposes. The PIC is the first eight characters of the NLIS ID which is printed on the tags issued to producers. Every time an animal moves to a property with a different PIC, or to a feedlot, saleyard, abattoir or other location, the PIC it moved from and to is recorded on the database, so a 'life history' of movements for that animal is established.
NLIS State/Territory authorities
Although NLIS is a national system, State/Territory NLIS regulations may differ slightly. You should contact your local authority about NLIS regulations, PIC registration and ordering devices.
