State Member for Scenic Rim, Jon Krause, has reminded residents that livestock brands returns are now due.
"If you own a registered brand or registered earmark, you must complete a brands return in January every year," Mr Krause said.
"If returns are not submitted for three consecutive years then brands may be cancelled."
"It only takes a couple of minutes to complete the brands return - it's simply not worth the risk of letting the brand registration lapse."
Mr Krause said he was happy for his office located at 91 Brisbane Street, Beaudesert to assist with the completion of brands returns and that residents would need to supply their PIC number for the online form to be completed.
He said returns could also be completed online at ibrands.daf.qld.gov.au or by visiting the Government Agency at 1 Telemon Street, Beaudesert.
