NLIS Devices ( National Livestock Identification System)

You will require a PIC to purchase NLIS devices. The PIC code is printed on the outside of the NLIS device, and must only be applied to cattle on that property. You may order NLIS devices through either your LHPA office (Rural Lands Protection Board) or a farm supply business.

NLIS devices are manufactured in two colours, which signify where the animal was born. The colours are:

1. white – referred to as ‘breeder devices’, and applied to animals that are born on the property (note: white devices can be used to replace lost devices for cattle born on the same property)

2. orange – referred to as ‘post-breeder devices’, and applied to animals not born on the property (note: orange devices can be used to replace lost or damaged devices for cattle introduced to a property).
