Applications for the electronic identification (eID) device rebate are now open

Thursday, October 05, 2023

Applications for the sheep and goat electronic identification (eID) device rebate are open.

South Australian sheep and farmed goat producers can now apply for a rebate on eligible eID tags purchased between 1 January 2023 - 31 December 2023.

The eID Device Rebate offers a 50% rebate up to a cap of $0.95 (GST exclusive) on the purchase price of each 2023 year of birth NLIS accredited eID tag.

The rebate is part of the Government of South Australia’s support package to assist with the national transition to eID. Under the new traceability system, sheep and farmed goats born on or after 1 January 2025 will need to be tagged before leaving their property of birth.

What is the criteria?

To be eligible for the eID Device Rebate, you must: 

  • be a South Australian sheep or farmed goat producer
  • have an active property identification code (PIC) and be registered with PIRSA
  • provide proof of payment for the purchase of eligible eID tags.

 Eligible devices must: 

  • be NLIS accredited eID breeder tags for sheep and goats
  • be the correct year-of-birth colour for 2023 (sky blue)
  • have been purchased between 1 January - 31 December 2023.

 How can I apply?
