MyOSPRI benefits farmers and livestock owners

MyOSPRI replaced the electronic Animal Status Declaration (eASD) system in July 2022. In future it will also replace the NAIT system, allowing you to:

  • access and update Animal Status Declaration (ASD) information, including creating online farm-to-farm or farm-to-meat processor ASDs
  • review disease management testing and laboratory information
  • access and update your NAIT information.

You'll be able to manage all your records of farm locations, livestock and people in one place.

As an accurate, reliable tracing system, MyOSPRI will:

  • increase confidence of international and domestic markets in the health of your animals and the quality of your animal products
  • allow us to manage a disease outbreak in livestock swiftly and efficiently.

An overview of MyOSPRI

In MyOSPRI you can create farm-to-farm Animal Status Declarations (ASDs) for cattle, sheep or deer.

When you fill in the form you can:
• get more information about what you need to do by selecting the question mark beside a field — help text slides out from the right of the screen
• send electronic copies of the ASD to the person receiving your animals, if you know their email address
• enter details of a livestock transporter, if you're using one.

When you've completed an ASD, you can:
• download and print it
• edit or cancel it.

You can also manage your profile — for example, update your address or add a new phone number.

If you need help you can:
• select the Need help button at the bottom left of the screen to go to the Help information on our website, or
• phone us on 0800 482 463.

MyOSPRI being released in stages

We're developing MyOSPRI in stages and working with you along the way to make sure we've got it right.

MyOSPRI went live in July 2021, and we invited a small number of farmers to use the new system to create farm-to-farm ASDs for cattle, sheep and deer.

In April 2022, we introduced the ability for farmers to add multiple farms they are responsible for.

In July 2022, MyOSPRI replaced eASD. This allowed farmers to:

  • create farm-to-meat processor ASDs
  • invite other people to join their team to help with managing ASDs.

Everyone will still need to use NAIT for:

  • registering a farm
  • registering animals
  • linking tags to animals
  • recording all livestock movements.

Once MyOSPRI is complete, you'll be able to do all of your NAIT and ASD tasks in one place. It will also cater for records of new diseases and species, to support future initiatives.
