UTT animals are exempt from tagging if you:

  • declare them by recording a UTT movement in your NAIT account before you move the animal
  • clearly mark them with a red X so they can be identified by the meat processor or inspector
  • pay a UTT levy of $13 (plus GST) for each UTT animal — this will be deducted by the meat processor.

Untagged animals that aren't declared and/or marked, and moved to a meat processor, don't comply with NAIT requirements.

Before you start, you need to know:

  • NAIT location number of the farm the animals are moving from
  • NAIT number of the location (meat processor, game estate, safari park or zoo) the animals are moving to
  • exact number of UTT animals in the movement
  • animals' gender, breed and approximate age
  • the date the animals will be sent.

Log in to your NAIT account and follow these steps.

  1. 1 From your home page, select Create movement.
  2. 2 Select Sending movement.
  3. 3 Find the NAIT location number of the meat processor you're sending the animals to.
  4. 4 Enter the NAIT number of the processor and the date you're sending the animals.
  5. 5 Select Create exempt movement.
  6. 6 Enter the category, total number of UTT animals, their gender and breed, and approximate age.
  7. 7 Select Continue.
  8. 8 To complete the declaration, select Create movement. If you've filled in all the required fields, a green success banner will display on your screen.
