Lodge my Annual Land and Stock Return
Annual Land and Stock Returns (ALSR) are essentially a 'farm census' and provide us with important information on land use and livestock numbers across the state.
The information you provide is invaluable and allows us to:
- quickly and accurately respond to emergency or biosecurity events
- protect our ‘clean and green’ reputation against pests and diseases
- build a statewide picture of agricultural land use and livestock numbers
- monitor flocks and herds for emergency animal diseases
- help keep domestic and international markets open.
Even if you have no stock, it is important to lodge your annual return. Information related to cropping and horticulture enterprises and lifestyle blocks is invaluable in a biosecurity event such as a pest or disease outbreak. Lodging your annual return is also a legal requirement.
ALSRs are to be lodged no later than 31 August each year.
Having issues accessing the portal?
Unfortunately, some customers have been experiencing issues accessing our Annual Land and Stock Return portal, due to problems with the reCAPTCHA technology.
To help with these issues, we have built a new secure online form so you can still lodge your return online. If you have tried to use the portal and are having login issues the new online form is easy to complete and asks the same questions as the paper form.
You will need:
- your total number of livestock, including any ‘pets’
- your Holding Reference Number (you can find this in the top right corner of the paper ALSR form mailed to you recently).
If you have any problems with the new form or lodging your return, please call our team on 1300 795 299.
Troubleshooting the ALSR portal
There is a simple security test to complete upon logging in which confirms you are a human and not a computer trying to break into the secure portal. If you are having issues with this test, we recommend you try using an incognito or InPrivate browser (the name will depend on the browser).
If you need assistance accessing these browser windows please download our cheat sheet PDF, 73.2 KB.
