  • Maintain accurate and up-to-date records of individual stock identification numbers and stock totals including purchases, sales, deaths and rations.
  • Valuable stock should be photographed or videoed.
  • Stock should not be left in yards or holding paddocks adjacent to stockyards unless they are in sight of the home.
