Be a mate, update NAIT

We're encouraging farmers to do their bit to maintain the integrity of New Zealand’s biosecurity system this moving day. Our ‘be a mate, update NAIT’ campaign is asking that farmers give updating their NAIT accounts a go, but if they come across any problems to get in touch with our OSPRI Support Centre for additional help.

Whether you’re moving with a herd (sharemilkers), moving farm without a herd (farm managers, contract milkers), or moving animals to grazing, we’ve developed resources to make it easier for you.

You can find more information on our website or by talking to your local regional partner.
