You need to sign up for TB management if you're a Person in Charge of Animals (PICA) responsible for the day-to-day management of cattle or deer. This includes everything from a single cow or deer (for example, on your lifestyle block) to a large herd of deer or cattle.
Why you need to register
Registering for TB management means that you’ll be set up as part of our TB testing programme. You’ll get a TBfree herd number (formerly known as AHB number) that’s separate from your NAIT location number, and our testing contractors will contact you to organise TB testing at your property (if it's required).
How often your animals are tested will depend on which area in the country you live in and what the risk of TB is in that area. You can check this on our disease control area map.
