  • Tour Option

    The Tour option uses touring inspectors and commences October in Waikato/Northland (North Island) and October/November (South Island). These inspections are usually completed by the end of November in any given year. An itinerary is arranged annually for inspectors to visit different localities that will, as far as practicable, meet the wishes of the applicant. This option will be entered automatically if you have not ticked one of either service options.

    Personalised Option

    This inspection service option is being offered in Northland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty for 2019 inspections (excludes Taranaki, Manawatu, Wairarapa and the South Island). This option is available so members can plan an inspection to work in better with the needs of their farm operation where needed. Please note the following conditions for this option:

    1. One local classifier will inspect your cattle (this inspector will be TOP certified and a Jersey NZ classifier).
    2. Inspections must be carried out in suitable yards for drafting and be on concrete.
    3. The member or one staff member must be present during the inspections to assist with drafting etc.
    4. Your preferred month for the inspection will be noted and passed to the local classifier assigned to carry out the work. The inspector will confirm with the member a mutual date and time to carry out the inspection, there is no guarantee that an inspection will be available for any specific date or time, so flexibility is required.
    5. Personalised inspections will not be carried out at the same time as the tour is going through the region. If you want a personalised inspection when a tour is going through your region, the inspection will be carried out by the tour classifiers.
    Health & Safety

    Jersey NZ will confirm the date and times of your inspection. Please ensure that any health & safety policy requirements for your farm are provided to Jersey NZ at least one week prior to the scheduled inspection.


    All members are asked to make hot water and scrubbing brushes available to inspectors to prevent cross-contamination between farms.
