You have to meet certain requirements if you move goats within Queensland, or into Queensland from other states and territories.
These requirements help protect our industries from pests and diseases.
Receiving goats that have been relocated
If you are receiving relocated goats, you must record the stock movement within 48 hours on the National Livestock Identification System (NLIS).
Moving goats within Queensland
Before moving goats within Queensland you must:
- become a registered biosecurity entity (RBE) to be allocated a property identification code (PIC)
- complete a movement record
- understand and follow animal welfare transport standards
- ensure that you have met cattle tick minimization requirements as per the biosecurity manual (PDF, 1MB) when travelling between cattle tick zones.
Moving goats into Queensland from interstate
Ensure that you have met all Queensland travel requirements for goats.
Note: you do not require a Queensland certificate of health as of 1 July 2016 when moving goats into Queensland. You do have a general biosecurity obligation to prevent or minimise a biosecurity risk.
Moving goats from Queensland to another state or territory
Contact the state or territory's agriculture department to check their laws for moving goats.
Please make sure that you meet all Queensland travel requirements for goats when moving through Queensland to get to another state.
