Livestock Production Assurance (LPA)

Find out more about the Livestock Production Assurance (LPA) program.



The Livestock Production Assurance (LPA) program is the on-farm assurance program that underpins market access for Australian red meat. LPA National Vendor Declarations (NVDs) provide evidence of livestock history and on-farm practices when transferring livestock through the value chain.

Program Requirement

Seven requirements make up the LPA program. Producers who choose to participate in the LPA program commit to carrying out on-farm practices that feed into and support the integrity of the entire system. This integrity is verified when producers sign LPA NVDs for livestock movements.
