If an animal dies or is euthanised at a sale yard, the entity must record a receiving movement for the animal and declare the animal as dead in the NAIT system.

The PICA sale yard entering the animal death information will need to provide:

  • the date of death
  • how the animal died
  • the disposal method.

If an animal dies in transit, the saleyard PICA must receive the animal onto their NAIT location number, then record the death in NAIT.
