Are you prepared to register your farm animals? Think you might want a goat, cow or a few chickens at your hide away bungalow? Be prepared to register your animals, have them chipped or register your premises one day in the future.

The structure is already set up, we need only to see a couple of disease outbreaks
for a mandatory registration law to be passed.

Lets hear what you folks have to say about that potential mandatory registration if it should arise......

This is already being incrementally implemented in europe, along with a vaccination program for domestic animals. While there are indeed a few problemsome species and a few health hazzards, it just reaks of control maniacalism, and is excessive. I will never chip any living animal. Vaccination in animals has the same effect it does on humans, in some cases previously healthy animals get sick, and there is a low probability, but not negligible, of pets actually dieing from it. Plus, if we have this slow awareness building up of the health hazzards of vaccinations in humans, won't the problem remain if we're vaccinating animals we eat, contaminating our food sources?

It is already illegal here to raise and kill your own pigs and cows, with the use of state approved slaughterhouses being mandatory. Over the last 20 years I have noticed the overall quality of my food decrease, so these guys, despite all the regulation, are not doing the jobs they tell use they're doing, ie, making us healthier and improving our life quality.

I think this is related to the codex alimentarius, and they will be going after food supplements too, in an effort to dumb us down back to what we were in the middle ages, hunger stricken peasants enslaved by feudal landlords.

I don't understand the whole discussion about NAIS. It's gone already.
The Country of Origin Labeling Law takes over. No need for NAIS and to register any farm. COOL is item-level traceback. Only when you sell your livestock you'll need an ID so the retail store can see where it was born, raised etc.

NAIS is scheduled to go in effect January 2009

NAIS is not only alive and well but the FDA is thinking about implementing it for crops. The multi-national AG companies have the European Union, World Trade Organization and the United Nations all heading in the same direction. The US and EU account for 35% of the world food supply so this is a VERY BIG DEAL.

First the patenting of plants and animals so farmers must pay corporations royalties. (This was illegal in EU)

Second destruction of national “trade barriers” (allowed patented GMOs into INDIA resulting in farmer suicides at the rate of one every 8 hours.)

Third replacement of traditional “Food Safety” measures such as quarantine and testing with “tracability” and ISO/WTO/FAO “Good Farming Practices” (means massive red tape but no real safety measures)

Fourth only “official” listed seeds maybe sold in Europe and the cost of listing is thousands of dollars a variety. (no small businesses need apply) The UN is also behind “official” varieties.

Fifth the agreement between the US and EU to “harmonize” standards

Sixth “stamping out” (slaughter) will be used instead of vaccination thanks to the OIE definition of “disease free status”. This allows wholesale removal of traditional livestock opening the way for patented GMO animals.

Seventh the move of Plum Island Disease Lab to Cattle Country. Will a “release” wipe-out US herds as it did in the UK?

The regulations have already done much to destroy family farms in Europe (62 suicides in the UK). The regs are being implemented in Canada and Australia and the USA is next. If the freedom to grow food without regulation is removed from the EU, USA, Canada and Australia AND the regulating body is International then WHO is in control?

US farmers are fighting this but nicely orchestrated “Food Scares” are doing a good job of herding the sheeple into believing REGS. are needed. No one sees that USDA has quit all but nominal testing for disease, turned border checks over to private firms like the Mexican Cattleman's Assoc. and has opened the borders to foreign food without any real safety checks. No one sees BIOFUEL stripped the USA of its emergency stockpile of food. “the cupboard is bare” to quote Sec of AG Ed Schaefer. And the MEDIA completely ignores the truth behind NAIS despite major attempts by farm groups to get the word out.

Checkout these, they give a taste of what is in store for the USA.:

This equates to a basic ban on living. Has the government ever done anything well? At least since WWII? Now they want complete control over what and how we eat. I honestly begin to think the end is near. They want to tag and chip my chickens and sheep, while the nation balloons up on scrap from McDonalds, forcing our insurance to skyrocket and the general well being of the nation deminish. If they can find my animals (and there will be more in the spring) they can fine me, if not, no way to I ever consent to this blantant form of forced socialism.

Thanks for the quality info, there is always some unknown comic er I mean expert that has all the wrong answers. When people would rather listen to stupidity I generally give up and go elsewhere. Sheep are sheep and folks like you with facts are few and far between. Usually we get the pseudo facts from the odd ball idiot and everyone falls for it without throwing out spiders or even googling the correct answers.

The Thanks really go to Gisela at NAISinfocentral, Walter at NoNAIS, Darol at NAISSucks (boy does he have that right),the folks at LibertyArk and a very special thanks to Mary Zanoni who put a MAJOR kink in the USDA's tail with her lawsuit._javascript:icon('

I wish I could wake up the Sheeple to this very real threat to our food supply. I hand out stuff each weekend and people just will not believe there is a real problem. I guess they will have to starve before they see what I meant._javascript:icon('

This thing is going no where, K.

I know the guy that did the research and it just has fizzled out. There was a thread on this along time ago.

I just got through going through a "Beef quality assurance" program and this is what they are going to do to prove the "age of the beef" .

More damn record keeping. There are two USDA programs and I can't find my book so it must be at my other office, that means I can't tell you what they are.

Ranchers through a fit over the cost of the "chip tag" so it is going no where.

You can't chip a chicken, hog, etc.

Want to bet? the USDA has come up with a way to tag chickens and are now airing "public sevice anouncements" get this looking for that deadly and dangerous creature
