MyOSPRI benefits farmers and livestock owners

Over time, MyOSPRI will bring together our NAIT, TBfree and electronic Animal Status Declaration (eASD) systems, allowing you to:

  • access and update your NAIT information
  • access and update Animal Status Declaration (ASD) information, including creating online ASDs
  • review disease management testing and laboratory 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 between now and 2023, and releasing it in stages. We're 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
  • locations associated with each farm/lifestyle block/address to send ASDs.

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

After our next release on 25 July 2022, farmers will be able to:

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

Also, MyOSPRI will replace eASD, and we will retire eASD. We'll notify eASD users about the change over the next few months.

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.

Using MyOSPRI now

Until MyOSPRI fully replaces our other systems, using it is voluntary. We have only invited a small number of farmers to use it, so we can make sure the system is fit for purpose, and refine it as we go.

If you're interested in working with us to shape MyOSPRI, we'd welcome you as a testing partner. You'll be the first to use the new releases, and will help us make MyOSPRI as easy as possible to use.

To sign up, fill in our online form.

In 2022, we’ll be encouraging more farmers to join MyOSPRI, and providing details on how to do that.
