Compliance management

Features and tools for livestock farmers

Following regulations and meeting compliance requirements are increasingly time-consuming and costly problems. Every day, it seems someone wants to know something new, and the consequences of not providing the right information in the right format at the right time can be serious.

Some livestock farmers see compliance as a burden or a tax, but for others it’s an opportunity to build a better business. FarmIQ helps reduce the burden of compliance by taking the relevant pieces of information that are being captured everyday as part of good farm recording practice and packaging it, so it can be supplied to the right person with a few clicks of a mouse.

Farm Assurance Programme

Like FEPs, the requirement to be New Zealand Farm Assurance Programme (NZFAP) compliant is increasing. FarmIQ offers farmers the ability to complete RMPP’s FAP template quickly and easily. FarmIQ pulls relevant data about animal health treatments, land applications and so on from other areas of the system—making the FAP compliance process as simple and painless as possible. The FAP can be easily exported for submission to an auditor.

Automated NAIT notification

Biosecurity and traceability are both front of mind for New Zealand farmers given the presence of M. bovis. FarmIQ automatically notifies NAIT of all births, deaths and animal movements between farms. Highly accurate animal-level (EID) or mob/herd level records of where the animal came from, where it went on the farm, who it socialised with and where it went is all sorted in FarmIQ. This level of information is highly valuable, especially for farms who've been affected by M. bovis.

Health and Safety

A complete, fully featured, best-in-class health and safety tool is incorporated in FarmIQ. You can identify hazards on the map, record and report on incidents and near misses, capture health and safety training records, record team meetings, store emergency plans and related documentation, and produce reports on health and safety compliance. The functionality has been reviewed by Worksafe New Zealand.

Farm Environmental Planning

FarmIQ incorporates an integrated ‘living’ farm environment planning (FEP) tool that’s accredited by ECAN. The tool uses the mapping, planning and calendar capabilities to help you identify potential environmental problems, develop mitigation strategies and run the programme of work required as part of the farm’s day-to-day activity plan. FEP's can be exported, shared with regional councils or processors as required.
