The National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) is Australia's system for identifying and tracking livestock. The system is now being implemented by the Australian alpaca and llama industry for biosecurity purposes. Aside from the biosecurity, the system can give quality assurance, management, social and economic benefits to the alpaca and other livestock industries. The NLIS Alpaca will use a visually readable electronic tag which will stay with each animal for life.

As further information on this initiative becomes available it will be posted to this section of the web site.

Documents pertaining to the implementation of National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) Alpaca & Llama can be found on the Animal Health Australia web site.
