You can only use NAIT tags at the NAIT location number they were issued for. This ensures that your animals can be traced easily if there's a disease outbreak.
Unless you have tags printed with a dairy participant code, you can't:
If you're planning to move, avoid stockpiling too many tags — you can't assign them to another location if they have your current NAIT location number printed on them.
If your tags have a dairy participant code printed on them, they are still linked to a specific NAIT location number. However, because the participant code printed on the tags refers to a herd, not a location, you can reassign them to your new farm.
If you move your dairy herd to a new farm, before you tag your animals, contact us to reassign your tags to your new location.
If a calf is born or an animal loses its tag while at grazing, before you tag the animals with your dairy participant code, contact us to have the NAIT tag re-issued to the NAIT location where the animals are grazing.
Tags can only be used for the NAIT location where your animals are kept.
