NAIT Reporting

Overview

This screen displays the current status of NAIT reporting requirements for a farm, enables a user to initiate the transmission of a report directly to NAIT and see details of previous transmissions.

 

Select Farm

When you initially select NAIT Reporting from the user menu, it will present the following screen where you select the farm to view NAIT Reporting details and initiate reporting. This is required due to the web portal structure that allows users to view and manage multiple farms associated with the account.

Simply select the down arrow in the Select Farm box and select the name of the Farm to be presented with the NAIT Summary page for that farm.

 

NAIT Summary

Once the farm is selected, the system displays a screen similar to what is displayed below. The displayed data is as follows:

  • Farm Name - from the previous selection

  • SEND TO NAIT button

    • This button will be inactive (gray instead of green) unless there is at least one non-zero number in one of the status categories

    • If it is active and selected, it will:

      • Check that the NAIT number, username and password has been entered for the selected farm.

        • If not it will present an error dialog stating that information is missing with a button to go to the Edit Farm screen

        • If so, it will initiate the NAIT reporting transmission

    • If there are no counts in Grazed Out or Sold status, then the transmission will proceed directly

    • If there are counts in Grazed Out or Sold status, the Receiver Assignment screen will be presented for completion (see below) 

  • Number of animals per status category since last successful NAIT transmission

    • Animal Status​ - this is a list of the status changes in StockManager that correlate to specific NAIT reporting requirements

    • Cattle and Deer counts - this is a count of animals by type that have changed status and require NAIT reporting

    • The counts shown in the table are update based on the following rules

      • ​Status Changes​
        • Any time an individual Cattle or Deer record status is changed to one of those listed in the table​
      • Select the trash can next to a non-zero count will reduce count to zero (after confirmation)
      • NAIT Transmissions - individual record status
        • ​Success - count is reduced for each record
        • Warning - count is reduced for each record
        • Failed - count is NOT reduced for each record
      • Exceptions
        • If an animal’s status has changed multiple times since the last reporting, only the earliest status change will be shown. Once that status change has been transmitted successfully (Success or Warning), the next earliest status change for the animal will be shown in the count. This will continue until all status changes for an animal are successfully transmitted. 
        • Receiver Selection - 3rd Party - the counts for these records will be removed as soon as a NAIT transmission is initiated, regardless of the transmission outcome.
  • NAIT Transmission History
