Goat NVD

Current Goat NVD

Are you using the right NVD? Only the current version May 2017 (G0517) will be accepted.  All other versions are no longer valid.

LPA NVD for goats is available both electronically and in printed booklets and can be ordered via your LPA Online Account or via the LPA Service Centre by calling 1800 683 111.

The current Goat NVD allows for harvested rangeland goats to be moved, without a tag from the property on which they were caught to an abattoir or registered goat depot.

Producers should note that when uploading the transaction data to the NLIS database, if they have received or sold a consignment of harvested rangeland goats that are eligible to be moved tag free, they still need to complete the ‘vendor bred’ section on the NLIS. Indicate that the stock has not been bred by the owner (select ‘no’), and then for the timeframe indicate ‘less than 2 months’.

See answers to some frequently asked questions below however if you have any further questions please call the helpdesk on 1800 683 111.

Why do I need an NVD?

The LPA NVD is required for all livestock movements, including property to property, through saleyards, direct to processors or to feedlots, and to the live export trade.

The LPA NVD is the main document behind Australia’s reputation as a reliable supplier of safe red meat to domestic and international markets.

It fosters the prosperity of the $22.9 billion Australian red meat and livestock industry by protecting its disease-free status and underpinning the marketing of Australian product as clean, safe and ethical. This includes the goatmeat export industry, which was valued at around $250 million in 2017.

I am just a small producer – do I still need the NVD?

The LPA NVD is required for all livestock movements, including property to property, through saleyards, direct to processors and to feedlots, and to the live export trade. This includes all goat meat producers, whether large or small.
