Recording animal movements

All movements of cattle and deer between NAIT locations must be recorded within 48 hours of them leaving one property and arriving at a new property.

Animal Status Declarations (ASDs)

When you move animals between properties, you need to complete an ASD — this transfers vital information about them to the next Person in Charge of Animals (PICA).

Moving animals from a Movement Control Area (MCA)

Before you move cattle or deer, find out if the property you're moving them from is in an MCA. To contain the spread of TB, they may need to be tested first.

Moving Day — moving animals or farm

When you move your herd or change your job on Moving Day, also known as Gypsy Day, you may need to update NAIT and TBfree information before and after you move.

Moving animals to an event

Moving bulls for mating

When bulls are sold or leased for mating, the bull provider, and the farmer receiving the animals must record movements in NAIT.

Moving untagged animals

Some cattle and deer don't need a NAIT tag, but if you want to move them off your property you must follow the NAIT requirements for moving untagged animals.
