EU Accreditation

The European Union Cattle Accreditation Scheme (EUCAS) is a national animal production scheme that guarantees full traceability of all animals through the  National Livestock Identification System (NLIS), linking individual animal identification to a central database. EUCAS allows Australia to meet the European Union (EU) market requirements for beef by segregating cattle that have never been treated with hormonal growth promotants (HGPs) at any time.

All our saleyards are fully EU accredited. EU eligible animals can be traded while retaining their EU status at VLE Pakenham and VLE Leongatha.
