Using Mobble for Compliance Record Keeping and Audits

Record keeping for compliance purposes is a big deal for livestock producers. Compliant records are essential to uphold the industry reputation for providing quality produce that meets animal welfare standards. Mobble is here to make your record keeping quick, simple and accessible at a moment's notice.

The most important and involved accreditation programs for livestock producers is the Australian Livestock Production Assurance (LPA) program and the New Zealand Farm Assurance Program (NZFAP). Below are some of the key requirements for LPA and NZFAP record keeping, and some guidelines on how best to use Mobble to keep track of those requirements.

You can find the full LPA Audit checklist here, and find out more about he NZFAP here.

Safe and Responsible Animal Treatments

Livestock sold for human consumption can not contain unacceptable chemical residues or physical hazards.

In Mobble we track mobs that are within a Withholding Period (WHP) or Export Slaughter Interval (ESI, Aus only) by displaying a red dot next to the mob number, making it easy to ensure everyone on the farm understands and observes these requirements.

Use Mob Actions to record:

  • Animal treatments and physical contamination. Chemicals should be added to the chemical shed first with correct withholding periods.
  • Animals that may have been purchased while still within a WHP/ESI. Mob actions can be backdated, so make sure you add recent treatments and withholding periods into Mobble when purchasing animals.

Stock Foods, Fodder Crops, Grains and Pasture Treatments

Use Paddock Actions to record:

  • Chemicals used on fodder crops, grain and pasture. Make sure you've added the chemical to your chemical shed first, with the correct WHP.
  • Documentation of all off-label use.

Use Mob History to identify:

  • Animals fed or grazed on purchased feeds, treated crops or pastures.

Preparation for Dispatch of Livestock

Use Mob Movements and Sales to record:

  • Date and time of yarding and truck departure. Record the mob move to the yard at the appropriate time, and include the time of truck departure when recording the mob sale.

Livestock Transactions and Movements

Use Add Mobs, Mob Movements and Sales to record:

  • All purchases, sales and movements. You can easily access this information through summaries and mob histories.

Use Mob Actions to record:

  • Note of animals that may have been exposed to physical contaminants. You could include the contaminant as an animal treatment, or add this information as a mob class to make sure it's visible at a glance.

Biosecurity

Use Mob Actions to record:

  • Evidence that you have inspected introduced livestock on arrival. You can put the details of the inspection in the notes.
  • Regular inspections of livestock, and appropriate actions when necessary e.g. animal health treatments.

Use Mob Movements to record:

  • Keeping introduced livestock in isolation for a minimum period

You can easily access summaries of mob movements, mob actions, paddock actions, livestock sales and casualties- see here for more info on viewing and exporting these summaries.
