 NLIS is Australia’s system for the identification and tracing of goats for biosecurity, food safety, product integrity and market access purposes. Producers are required to know where there goats are and where they have come from and in future this system may be a tool that assists with trace-ability and a sustainability plan for the industry. The first step is to apply for a Property Identification Number or PIC issued by your state department of primary industries or agriculture. Then purchase ear tags containing this unique number and keep a record of which goats have which ear tags. Even properties with just a small number of goats must comply.

From time to time on your clip report, you may notice that a portion of your clip has been described as NCV (i.e. having no commercial value).

This means that this fibre cannot be economically processed or, in some cases, cannot be processed at all, and is therefore not on-sold.
In the past we have out-sorted this type of fibre free of charge, however as of December 2005 this will no longer be the case. The Board of Directors has decided that from this time on any fibre consigned, which is classified as NCV, will attract a once-only charge of 30 cents per kilogram for handling, charged when the remainder of the clip is sold and deducted from sale proceeds. This is to help us defray the costs associated with both the time it takes to handle this type of fibre, and its subsequent re-packaging and disposal.

In future, if you have fibre of this type, or are unsure, please contact us prior to packing to discuss the viability of including this fibre in your consignment.

Thank you. Craig Clancy,
Snr Technical Officer

Insect infestations are just one of the reasons why fibre might be classed as NCV.
