Farmers engaged with NAIT at Fieldays

Date 20 June 2019

Thanks to all the farmers who visited our site this year. OSPRI's 12 strong Fieldays team were kept busy throughout the four days of the annual event at Mystery Creek.

As anticipated, the majority of farmers who dropped in wanted help updating their NAIT accounts, with all NAIT related enquiries accounting for almost 80% of farmer interactions. Here's what they thought.

With over 1100 visitors to the OSPRI Stand, dairy and beef farmers predominated and virtually split 50/50 numbers wise.  

While the annual scanner prize draw was popular, the new NAIT online system prototype generated plenty of interest and feedback from curious farmers, some of whom gave the thumbs up after trailing it onsite.

The top five topics at Fieldays 2019:

  1. NAIT re-registration 
  2. General
  3. NAIT movements
  4. Tagging animals
  5. NAIT system usability
