NLIS agree to faulty tag trial

National Livestock Identification Systems Limited have agreed to conduct a two year trial on tags to work out why some may be faulty.

Agforce and the Cattle Council of Australia have been pushing for the trial because they believe graziers are being unfairly punished for something that's not in their control.

Penalties are mixed but can be up to 40 dollars a beast if a NLIS tag does not work at a saleyard.

Lifetime traceability was introduced in 2004 to protect the 12 billion dollar cattle industry of Biosecurity concerns.

Manager of NLIS limited, Jo Quigley says they will be running the trial on three properties.

One in the Hunter Valley, one at Mitchell and one at Normanton.
