NLIS Sheep - PIC and Body Correlation Project

In mid 2009 AMIC entered into an agreement with Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA), the Federal Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) and the Australian Meat Processing Corporation (AMPC), to administer a Federal Government National Livestock Identification System (Sheep and Goat) Grant for the sheep processing sector.

The purpose of the Grant was to investigate technical solutions that would deliver systems to meet the European Union's (EU) requirement for Australian Sheep processors to correlate each ovine carcase to their Property Identification Code (PIC) of last residence up to the point of carcase disposition.
