Ordering NAIT approved RFID tags
You can order NAIT tags in the same way that you would normally order tags - from farm supply stores (for AHB tags) or through your artificial breeding provider (LIC or CRV Ambreed). You will need to have your AHB herd number or dairy participant code to order your tags. If you do not have an AHB herd number you should contact the Animal Health Board on 0800 437 243 or www.tbfree.co.nz.
Make sure you order NAIT approved tags. NAIT-approved tags meet NAIT’s performance standard, including a high retention rate when applied correctly.
The following manufacturers produce NAIT approved tags:
- RFID tags with the white female portion are for cattle, the back portion must also be white.
- RFID tags with the orange female portion are for deer, the back portion may be any colour but white.
