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.

The 2022 Annual Land and Stock Return portal is now closed. If you are yet to submit your livestock numbers for last year, please either complete your paper-based form, or contact your nearest office on 1300 795 299 to discuss your options.

Your 2023 Annual Land and Stock Returns will be mailed out in June. You will have until 31 August 2023 to submit your response, either via our secure online portal or manually on your form.
