Kill replace and remove

This file can be used to update or delete information from a previous kill upload.

For tagged animals, the upload process will attempt to match the previous kill record on the basis of the RFID or the Visual Tag ID (transaction ID and submitted record sequence are not required). For Untagged animals, the upload process will attempt to match the previous kill record using the NAIT Transaction Identifier and Submitted Record Sequence Number (these fields are mandatory for untagged animal records).

Your CSV file will need to include all of the column headings, in the correct order. This includes headings for optional columns you are leaving blank.
