National Animal ID System: Tracking the livestock

National Animal ID System: Tracking the livestock: "By goatlady (Submitted: 08/13/2006 5:04 pm)
Folks, I'm here to tell you this has absolutely NOTHING to do with disease control! And if you are a small farmer like myself, it will ruin you! What is the truth? THEY WANT YOUR MONEY! As if we are not already taxed enough.. and if you think for one minute because you are a city dweller this will not impact you.. think again! It will drive food costs up drastically - and when you have to register little Fiffi ; you too will feel raped by the system!

The Animal ID follows all animals.. so say you have a healthy animal, you sell this animal and it comes in contact with a diseased animal AFTER you have sold it and gets sick.. The Government comes back to YOU and can destroy your entire herd of animals.

Say you do not have the proper tags.. and you need a vet. Vets will eventually REFUSE to treat animals without tags.. No Matter what we do it will effect us ALL- Pet owners and small farms alike!

There will be a cost for moving animals from farm to farm.. so how are small ranchers supposed to earn a living if they cannot move their animals without extra costs? What about professional Animal transporters- So much for THEIR living.

And guess what? I don't want to stick ear tags in my critter's ears.. Who is going to pay for infections if they get them? And what about when they get pulled out.. NO! I choose NOT to .. NO NAIS! I SAY TO YOU!!! NO NAIS!
Keep the Government OUT of our barns!

What will be next.. A mandatory Poop Permit? Mandatory ear tags for our CHILDREN? Aren't we all taxed enough?

Animal Identification System (NAIS) becomes a reality. Also known as the U.S. Animal Identification Plan (USAIP), the USDA is behind the 'farm to fork' tracing system that allows governmental tracking of animals from birth to slaughter.
