Temporary livestock movements

Livestock Grazing

When animals are sent away from their primary NAIT location for grazing, the movement must be recorded if the animals are moving to a new NAIT location.

Recording a movement of animals to or from grazing is no different to regular NAIT movement recording, click here to find out how to record a movement in the NAIT system.

If your animals are sent to a grazing block that is also under your management and the location is registered as the same NAIT location, i.e. falls within a 10km radius and uses the same NAIT number, you do not need to record a movement.

It is important to remember that the animals sent to grazing will not be listed under the registered animals section of your NAIT account, however this does not mean change of the ownership of animals. The animals that are in a grazing location will appear under the NAIT account of the PICA responsible for the grazing premises. 

Recording movements to events

The NAIT scheme recognises that NAIT animals participate in events such as rodeos, shows and field days, and facilitates how the movements can be managed and recorded within the system to ensure that all animal movements are accounted for.

Events must be registered by the event organiser and will be assigned an event NAIT number. All NAIT animal movements to and from events must be recorded in the NAIT online system.

Only school calf or pet days are exempt from event registration and movement requirements as this will include only local animals which are easily traceable.

Creating a movement to an event is the same process as creating a movement to another PICA.

Service Bulls

When service bulls are sold or leased for mating, the sending NAIT movement must be recorded if the animals are moving to a new NAIT location.

Any PICA purchasing or leasing a service bull must record a receiving movement for the animal and must also record a sending movement for the bull when it leaves their property.

Transit Stops

A transit stop is a location where one or more NAIT animals are held temporarily during transport between two NAIT locations.

Animal movements do not need to be recorded to a transit stop, it is only required that the location is registered with NAIT.
