Stock Route Management Stock Route Management

Council implements and coordinates feral animal control across the Region.  Many landholders are participating in coordinated wild dog and rabbbit control programs including baiting and trapping pests.  Landowners are encouraged to contact Council Pest Management staff to;

  1. Report weed outbreaks

  2. Book 1080 batting programs

  3. Hire Cat, Rabbit, Wild Dog or Feral Pig traps

Straying Livestock

Any occurence of straying livestock on roads should be reported to your closest South Burnett Regional Council Customer Service Centre.  To assist Officer's in locating any straying stock, please ensure that you provide as much details as possible such as location (including rural property address), number of head, description of stock and if you know or suspect who the owner of the stock may be.

Impounding Livestock

If you wish to impound stock that have wandered onto private property, please contact Council on (07) 4189 9100.

It is the landholders responsibility under Council Local Laws and the Land Protection (Pest and Stock Route Management Act 2002) to maintain fences in stock proof condition and prevent stock from wandering at large. A maximum penalty of 400 units applies.
