Primary Production Genuine Reason
This genuine reason authorises a primary producer to possess and use a firearm in connection with farming & grazing activities.
The authority of the licence is ONLY for land that the applicant owns, manages or leases for the business of primary production, except in the case of a category C licence issued to a primary producer. In this case the primary producer may possess and use a firearm to which a category C licence applies on land which is used for primary production that immediately adjoins their own land provided they have the prior written permission of the owner or occupier of that adjoining land.
An Employee Authority authorising possession and use of a Category C type firearm registered to a primary producer is available for a person employed by a primary producer. To apply, see the link below.
