The Support Scheme will assist owners of sheep and goats to transition from the current visual device and mob-based approach to individual electronic tagging of sheep and goats, by providing a rebate on purchased tags​.

Rebates on eligible eID devices open 1 June 2024 and close 30 June 2026, or until funding for the scheme is expended, whichever occur first. 

Available rebates

  • A $1 rebate per tag on retail price (GST exclusive) of eligible eID device ear tags.
  • A $4 rebate per tag on retail price (GST exclusive) of eligible eID device goat leg bands, where ear tags are not suitable for particular goat breeds.
Eligible tag ​types

Rebates are only available on fully accredited National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) Radio Frequency Identification Devices (RFID) ear tags and leg bands. Refer to the Integrity Systems factsheet on its website for information on eligible eID devices. 

Note that there are non-NLIS accredited RFID tags for sheep and goats in the market. These have not undertaken the rigorous testing and accreditation of NLIS approved tags. Non-NLIS accredited devices are not eligible for rebates under this scheme. Rebates apply on the following eligible eID devices over the listed periods.​
