As is the case every six months, TAM reports are due from animal owners to the HI Animal Database by 14 January 2024. All animal movements recorded within the last six months plus initial stock from the second half of 2023 must be submitted. Reveals Leonie Jost, Editor In Land&Forst's specialist magazine, how you can make your job easier. I spoke to pig farmer Andrea He-Enking, who records her animals' movements on her smartphone using an ISW HITMELDER:
The semi-annual TAM reports will be released soon again. All animal movements as well as initial stocks for the second half of 2023 must be reported to the HI-Tier by January 14 at the latest in accordance with the Veterinary Medicines Act. At the same time, the livestock register must be updated in accordance with the Livestock Passage Act, and as if that were not sufficient documentation, all arrivals and departures must be reported to the pig database after seven days at the latest.
Lots of data – one place
Keeping track of all the animal movements and losses can be daunting. In order to be able to process legally required reports in one place, the ISW interest group of Schweinhalter Wirtschafts-GmbH, a subsidiary of ISN, developed the successful ISW Reporter some years ago. All inventory changes can be recorded and saved instantly to your computer or mobile phone using ISNApp.
Farmer Andrea He-Enking from the Vechta region has been using the ISW injury detector since the middle of last year, and is happy with how it has made her work easier. In addition to her own work, she also takes care of her husband and is also responsible for looking after the stock on another farm.
I look after the stocks of three companies. When I open the app, I have all three VVVO numbers together and I can make changes right awayHei Enqing says. This means that something is rarely forgotten.
I carry my cell phone with me to every animal observation and record losses immediately. It used to be that I only documented dead animals after a day or two and then had to think about which stable they were in.
All stock changes entered are stored centrally, meaning the stock register is always up to date and additions and outs can be sent to the pig database as well as TAM reports with just one click. Printing on paper is possible at any time.
Anna-Kathrin Bach from ISW helped develop the ISW strike detector and is available to users if they have any questions. After registration www.hitmelder.de You must first create your own business in the system. All suppliers and customers must also be entered once with their names, addresses and VVVO numbers.
First, everything should be set up correctlyBach says.
It's not rocket science, but it takes a little effort and should be done thoroughly. And then working time and nerves are saved. And not only that.
Users have already reported to us that inspectors were very enthusiastic about the inventory record that was meticulously maintained during inspections. This leaves an impression.
