The NAIT number is for the PICA (person in charge of animals) and that number can be associated with any number of herds.

The herd number is for the particular herd of animals.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for your question. You need both numbers because they relate to two different programmes - the national animal identification and tracing scheme (NAIT), and the TBfree New Zealand scheme. A NAIT number links you to your property and individual animals on your property. This information will enable New Zealand to respond quickly if there is a biosecurity incursion or a food safety concern. A herd number relates to the group of animals on your property, and is used for TB testing and management purposes.

Thanks,

The team at NAIT & TBfree New Zealand
