NLIS database changes for Victoria sheep and goat EID

The objective of this project was to make the necessary changes to the National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) database to accommodate mandatory sheep and goat Electronic identification (EID) reporting in Victoria by saleyards, abattoirs, knackeries, and properties. This was a Phase 1 initiative based on the mandatory tagging and mandatory uploads by abattoirs by 1 January 2018 requirements. All requested enhancements were delivered successfully by this project.

Additional projects were funded to support the rollout of the Sheep and Goat EID program in Victoria by implementing functionality within the NLIS technology platform (including the NLIS website and database), and supported ISC to:

1) Develop reports for the CowCatcher 3 program.

2) Modify non-NLIS device business rules for the VIC EID program.

3) Modify saleyard to abattoir business rules for the VIC EID program.
