Farm census day is just around the corner
This Thursday 30 June 2022, we ask landholders like you to let us know how many livestock are on your property, so we can build a stronger picture of land use and livestock numbers across NSW. We rely on this data when emergencies strike, and with disease threats such as Foot and Mouth and Lumpy Skin Disease on our border, your information has never been more important.
Your Annual Land and Stock Return (ALSR) has recently been mailed to you. It only takes a few minutes to complete, via our secure online customer portal. If you have not received your return please give our friendly customer service team a call on 1300 795 299.
Even if you don’t own any livestock it’s important you still complete your return, ticking ‘no’ to Question One on the form. We understand not everyone uses their land for farming livestock, but when an emergency like flood or fire hits, we use this information to determine our response, including mapping where animals are that may need our help.
All livestock over six months of age must be counted, regardless of whether they are yours, are being agisted or even pets. Pigs of any age must be counted, as well as flocks of 100 or more poultry.
The portal opens 30 June 2022.
