3  Simplified outline

                   The following is a simplified outline of this Act:

               (c)     the person who is liable to pay the levy; and

              (d)     any exemptions from the levy.

                     (e)  on the sale or delivery of cattle to a processor, if the cattle are not, at the time of the sale or delivery, fit for human consumption, under any applicable law of the Commonwealth, a State or a Territory; or

                      (f)  in circumstances where the ownership of the cattle changed or changes:
