The National Animal Identification and Tracing (NAIT) scheme links people, property and livestock in New Zealand. Under the scheme, cattle and deer are traced using NAIT-approved radio frequency identification device (RFID) ear tags. Once tagged, animals are registered in the national database. Registering with NAIT and updating your NAIT account is a legal obligation for all farmers and person(s) in charge of animals (PICA).
Our automated integration with NAIT saves farmers' time and effort. Record any stock births, deaths, tag replacements and movements in FarmIQ and the details will automatically flow through to NAIT, ensuring your NAIT obligations are met and saving any double-handling. This is a core feature of both the Enterprise Dairy and Enterprise Livestock packs.
To allow FarmIQ to report to NAIT, you need to do a few things:
- Give us written permission to report to NAIT on your behalf
- Ensure that all NAIT/EID tags are loaded into FarmIQ for all stock
- Maintain an accurate stock rec in FarmIQ by recording all births, deaths, purchases, sales and grazing movements
- Record all off-farm stock movements (other than sales to a processor) with the NAIT details of the receiving party
If you’re already a FarmIQ customer and you would like us to manage your NAIT compliance then please get in touch. You will need your NAIT number and have the authority to give us permission to act on your behalf.
