Property Identification Codes for Horse Owners

I recently received an email at working regarding something that has been put in place by the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) in July, 2010 – As of July 1st, 2010, Victorian property owners who have horses residing on their land must obtain a Property Identification Code (PIC).

You can read more about the PIC on the DPI Victorian website.

Having not been aware of this before, I think this is a great initiative that will help control biosecurity issues with regards to horses.  How?  Well if properties have a PIC, this will help to identify in the case of a disease outbreak, properties that could be affected.  It states on the DPI site, “it is critical to identify properties in the surrounding area with horses.”

The best bit is that a PIC is free and applying for one doesn’t appear to require providing too much information about the associated property.  This will definitely be something I’ll have to look into when hubby and I acquire land for agistment.  So Victorian property owners who have horses, do you have a PIC??
