Moving low-risk livestock between cattle tick zones

Low-risk livestock are species that can be hosts for cattle ticks but pose a low risk of spreading viable cattle tick. Low-risk livestock include horses, camels, goats, sheep, llamas, vicuña, guanacos and alpacas.

When moving low-risk livestock from the Queensland cattle tick infested zone to the cattle tick free zone, all stock must be tick free.

Low-risk livestock do not require a biosecurity certificate but must meet the ‘risk minimisation requirements’ stated in the biosecurity manual (PDF, 1MB).

All low-risk livestock must be accompanied by a movement record and meet any prescribed NLIS requirements. A declaration on the accompanying movement record must state how the cattle tick risk minimisation requirements have been met.
