If you’re in the market for animals this autumn, make sure the seller or vendor has a NAIT number. If the traded animals are moving between farms, confirm the movement in NAIT.
If you're moving animals off to grazing check in with your grazier on who is responsible for any animals that may need to be retagged while they're away. Remember you can only use tags at the NAIT location they were assigned to.
OSPRI and partners are trialling drones, thermal imaging cameras, and automated resetting traps with the expectation that these "game changing" technologies will be available this year.
Farmers trading animals on Trade Me will now have to complete a NAIT declaration when posting their animals online for sale.
