Our region has diverse landscapes including rainforests and wetlands. Agricultural activities include dryland and irrigated cropping, fodder, vineyards, beef and dairy cattle, sheep, alpacas and goats, horse breeding, poultry and aquaculture.
As of 1 September 2016 Hunter Local Land Services will no longer be selling ordinary Leader NLIS tags for cattle and sheep. All Hunter Local Land Services offices that currently sell emergency NLIS tags for urgent situations will continue to do so. NLIS Leader tags are available from local or online rural supply stores.
Grants and funding
Applications are now open for a range of grants programs to support landholders, land managers, community organisations and Aboriginal organisations across the Hunter to deliver natural resource management, sustainable agriculture ad community capacity building projects.
The Local Strategic Plan sets the goals for Hunter Local Land Services over the next five years and outlines the strategies for achieving these goals.
