Create and submit eNVDs right from the Web App.

Updated over a week ago

This Livestock Production Assurance (LPA) integration feature to create an eNVD is only currently available for Mob Management plan types.

Compatibility with Individual Animal Management plan types is under consideration.

Please contact Farm Success for further information.

What is an eNVD?

An eNVD is an electronic version of the current paper National Vendor Declaration that simplifies the transfer of information from one property to another, or to a processor or saleyard.

Should I be using eNVD?

eNVDs are satisfactory to use instead of the paper NVD, however they are not compulsory. They do create less paperwork and allow for a more accurate transfer of information. They also create a greater visibility of stock details and allow for more efficient management. 

How do eNVD’s help with LPA accreditation?

As a Livestock Production Assurance (LPA) accredited producer you must provide an NVD or eNVD for any movement of stock. When you sign Part A of an LPA NVD or eNVD, you are sharing information on livestock history and declaring compliance with the LPA requirements. The eNVDs that you submit through AgriWebb will accredit you as part of the LPA.

Can someone else receive an eNVD?

Yes! Your eNVDs can be submitted to any other party in the supply chain using the eNVD platform, regardless if they are using AgriWebb or not. You will receive a notification requesting that the NVD be printed if the receiver is not compatible with eNVDs. 

Can I create an eNVD in the Mobile App?

Currently, you are only able to create eNVDs on the Web App.

What do the Statuses on an eNVD Mean?

The statuses of an eNVD within the LPA system:

  • Draft (not submitted – any changes can be made to consignment)

  • Submitted (submitted – becomes visible to any associated PICs – only livestock number of head, description can be updated)

  • Locked (set 48 hours after movement date – visible to associated PICs – no changes to any of the consignment possible)

  • Deleted (only possible to delete drafts – once deleted is not visible to creator)

We have the additional status of Finalised which applies to submitted eNVD’s that have been reconciled.

Note: You can reconcile a submitted or locked consignment BUT as mentioned above the head transported can no longer be changed in the LPA and the head transported if changed when reconciling will only apply within AgriWebb.

Having trouble creating an eNVD?

If you are having any issues at all, please contact our Farm Success team and we can get you back up and running. You can also log into the MLA website and submit your eNVD. Once it has been completed through the MLA, you will be able to view the eNVD from the AgriWebb Web App.

Need an eNVD for transporting Agistment animals?

If you are transporting livestock away for agistment but want to keep the animals in AgriWebb to maintain historical records for when they return, you can still create an eNVD. Simply fill out your eNVD as normal, but don't hit the reconcile button. This will still push information through to the LPA, but keep your animals on the AgriWebb platform. Read more about agisting animals in AgriWebb here.

Need an eNVD to transfer animals between farms on AgriWebb?

If you are transporting animals between two farms on AgriWebb, you can create an eNVD to suit. Simply fill out your eNVD as normal, but don't hit the reconcile button. This will still push information through to the LPA, but keep your animals on the AgriWebb platform. You can then perform a transfer of the animals between your farm on AgriWebb, read more about that here.

Note: ONLY click reconcile if you want a sale record created! The eNVD does not need to be reconciled for a livestock transfer or agistment.

Reconciling an eNVD

Reconciling an eNVD will adjust the stock numbers of the selected mobs in AgriWebb. By default the transported animals will be removed from their mobs, and a sale record will be created with reference to the NVD, but if the sale record has already been created or the animals transferred off farm then this step can be skipped during the reconciliation.

This step should occur after the animals have been transported and the final head transported is known. Once finalised the consignment will be read only.

To reconcile an eNVD:

  1. Open it on the web app. 

  2. Click on the Reconcile button.

  3. Update the head transported for each of the selected groups

  4. Update the date of transportation. 

  5. (Optional) Skip the creation of the sale record.

Reconciling eNVDs for Sale Records

When reconciling the eNVD, make sure that the check box under sale record is selected.

A Sale Record will be created (unless skipped) for the consignment with all of the selected groups added, and livestock on the farm will be updated. As details of the sale are returned, update the consignments sale record.

Note: A single sale record is created for all mobs selected. To update the sale record the version of your mobile app must be at least 3.1.0. Check your app store for available updates.  

Reconciling eNVDs for Transfer Records

For Transfer Records when Mobs are being transferred from one PIC to another, ensure that the "Sale Record" box remains unchecked. The Transfer Record can now be done via the web app when the eNVD is created (without a sale record) which will save the farm manager going back to the mobile app

Note: If farm managers forget to uncheck that box and a sale record is created, this can be fixed by deleting the sale record to return the mob to the farm. Alternatively, you can edit the sale record and update the "Transport" section to transfer the mob to the correct Farm and set the income to $0.00 (which will be the default anyway).

How do I print an eNVD?

  1. Open the eNVD

  2. Select Download in the top right hand corner of your screen

  3. Once you have downloaded the eNVD, you will be able to print the PDF

Note: You are unable to print Draft eNVDs.

Can I print the eNVD and then update stock numbers?
Yes, you are able to print the eNVD and then update your stock numbers.
