Recording Animal Movements

Tracing the movement of cattle and deer on and off-farm not only ensures compliance with legislation, but also gives accurate traceability records.

NAIT and OSPRI are proud to deliver this interactive workshop on the fundamentals of NAIT. This will help you feel more confident in using the NAIT system and understand why traceability on farm is so important.
At the end of this workshop, you will:

  • Understand what NAIT is and what your responsibilities are
  • How to register with NAIT and register animals
  • How to keep up-to-date with recording and confirm movements
  • Know what to do if moving farms
  • Understand what Delegates, Accredited Entities and Information Providers are

 

Carbon Farming

We’ve heard a lot in the news about the price of carbon and the need to plant trees to achieve the carbon zero goal. But, what is the cost of putting the trees in the ground and what management is put in place to secure its viability?

We will have Mike Strang, who owns Whanganui consultancy Transglobal Connections Ltd to answer your questions and concerns, and outline the opportunities in the market.

Transglobal Connections Ltd specialises in the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) including forestry carbon credits and manuka honey.
