Herd recording requirements are regulated by the New Zealand Standard of Dairy Herd Testing. As a Certified Herd Testing provider, LIC must make reasonable efforts to ensure that the standard is adhered to.
What does this mean for you if you Herd Test?
Recording your herd
Resolution of Queries
In order to receive full component herd testing results, the recording requirements above must be met by the farmer.
Where queries are not resolved in 150 days and the recording requirements above are not met, the test will be considered Somatic Cell Count (SCC) only.
Time Limit for Resolution
Some queries can take longer than 90 calendar days, so all queries need to be resolved within 150 calendar days of the test taking place. Updating records after 150 days will not result in the herd test data being published or the core database being updated. The results for that test will be permanently suppressed.
