Our ag days have already been. The school ag day was Saturday and Group day (4 rural schools) was yesterday.

I suggest you make a note to include the info on ag days in the September issues in the future, so anyone not up with the play has time to get things sorted.

On the plus side, I didn't notice any calves without NAIT tags, and the judges were asking the children questions about them and what they were for as part of the rearing section.

I don't think our neighbouring kids were asked questions, esp. the young one with the missing tag but ripped ear. Off to group day shortly, perhaps that will be another opportunity?

Anyhow I put my concerns in an email directly to NAIT and received a call from one of NAIT's kind CS people. Her advise was that school judges have no way of knowing whether a calf is NAIT registered or not, and have no power on behalf of NAIT to act otherwise.

Very true. Because an animal has a NAIT tag in it's ear does not automatically mean that the information has been passed on to NAIT.
Hopefully NAIT have now set up a system where they only hassle the person who has sent an unrecorded animal away, rather than the receiver of an unrecorded animal that has been recorded by the receiver since the movement.

Have you got the latest ASD forms?

The Animal Status Declaration (ASD) form, which must be completed for all movements of cattle and deer, was updated in May 2012 with a phase-in period during which the older forms could still be used. That phase-in period comes to an end on 1 November 2013. This means that from 1 November you must use the latest (May 2012) ASD forms, and older forms may not be accepted.

Make sure any ASD forms you use from 1 November are marked with the May 2012 approval date and have a box at the top right for including your NAIT number for cattle or deer.

To get new ASD forms either:

- visit tbfree.org.nz to download them
- email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or,
- call TBfree New Zealand on 0800 482 4636.

Every damned time! Try and upload a csv file which is exactly the same as the one you previously uploaded ... and it won't go. God this is frustrating. AGAIN.

The NAIT slaughter levy for cattle has been reduced from $1 to 50 cents per tagged carcass from 1 March 2014.

NAIT's intention is to only recover what it needs to operate and maintain its systems and to reduce costs to farmers as soon as possible. This is the second reduction after the original slaughter levy of $1.35 was reduced to $1, and the cattle tag levy was reduced from $1.10 to 90 cents in March 2013.

The $13 Impractical to Tag levy for untagged animals at meat processors will remain unchanged. All rates exclude GST.

We're introducing a new, simplified look for our NAIT system email notifications, which you'll start receiving soon. You'll notice:

- Clear email subject lines, with 'to do' at the beginning of those which require action from you.
- A simplified format.
- Traffic light symbols at the beginning of each notification to help you prioritise your emails.
- An explanation of what has happened in your NAIT account.
- Details of what you need to do, if anything, with direct links to the right place in your NAIT account online.

We're also simplifying the options for setting your email notification preferences. You will be able to choose which emails you want to receive, so you can focus on what's important to you.

Hello NAIT, we recently had to ask and adjoining boundary neighbour to remove and further restrain their stock from the back of our property. Their stock has been wandering over a number of properties recently and this weekend were sent/walked up the road to graze there.

We have some concerns in regard to the health of the animals (several are suffering from facial execemia) and most appear in need of worming. My concern is the possible spread of BVD.

From the animals I saw on our property, none were tagged with NAIT tags but had AHB tags. They appear to be replacements for the adjoining dairy business/family.

So my question to NAIT is how far along is the system for reporting of potential unreported movements for tracking of diseased stock?

Hi Max2,

Thanks for your question. The NAIT scheme is moving into the last year of its transition phase. All pre NAIT cattle (born before 1 July 2012) must be tagged and registered in the NAIT system by 1 July 2015. However if these animals are moved to a different NAIT number, which it sounds like your neighbour has done, they must be tagged and registered prior to movement and then the movement must be recorded.

We are happy to follow up instances of non-compliance with the scheme. Call our contact centre on 0800 624 843 with details of the property involved and we can help educate the relevant person on what is required.

Thanks,

The team at NAIT

Many thanks for your reply. :) Much as I thought.

My next question is will NAIT track only notifiable disease or something along the lines of BVD?

(don't get me wrong, I am peeved they were allowed to be 'missing'' for so long from the owners property (lazy so and so) but I am concerned about the potential due to his negligence of other diseases coming onto our property too.)

Hi Max2,

The NAIT system has the ability to hold other types of disease information, however the desire for NAIT to manage this would need to be led by the relevant industry that is affected by the disease.

Thanks,

Hi everyone,

Last week we made some changes to the NAIT system - you may have read about these in our e-newsletter. Here's a summary for you:

- Movement categories: We have changed the way your movements are categorised and displayed to make it easier for you to know which ones require your action. You now have three movement categories; action required, incomplete and complete. Find out more.
- Receiver initiated movements: When a person receiving stock records the receiving movement before the sender, previously the sender could not see what had been recorded. We have updated this so that the sender can view the movement details and easily record a matching movement, or deny the movement if the details are incorrect. Find out more.
- Pending animals: Now when you look at your list of registered animals, those which are pending off your farm are automatically excluded. Pending off your farm means they have already been recorded in a movement off your property but are yet to be confirmed by the receiver. Find out more.

I have recently obtained cattle grazing from a neighbour. I presume but don't know if he is NAIT registered. He has gone overseas until November so cannot be contacted easily. How do I change his land registration to my registration, so that I don't have to record my cattle movement into and from his property every time I open the gate for the cattle?

Hi LongRidge,

If you are a person in charge of animals (PICA) on your neighbours property, and their property touches boundaries with yours or is within 20km, you can add this farm to your NAIT number. This means you could move animals between the two properties without having to record the movement in the NAIT system each time. To do this, follow these instructions:

1. Log on to your NAIT account here .
2. On your homepage click 'manage NAIT activities' and then 'view/update NAIT number registration details'.
3. In the registered farms section click 'change'.
4. Here you can search for the property you want to add to your NAIT number. Once you find the correct property click 'add this farm'.
5. Click 'continue' to complete the process.

If you need help, call us on 0800 624 843.

Thanks,

The team at NAIT
