Besides, this bill isnt about lifestock, its about vegetables and fruits. The government wants to ban people from growing their own fruits and vegetables.
If trading is all that is being done, then the government can't get it's fingers in the mix.
When it comes to the "tainted" food we've heard about, it wasn't small farmers responsible!
It was corporate producers and cheap, immigrant labor; neither of whom care about the product or the consumer - they are looking for $$ and nothing more.
I have grown my own food more than once, and I am going to say this as bluntly as I can on here: *BLEEP* This legislator *BLEEP* this law *BLEEP* the federal government for even considering this.. and Thrice *BLEEP* the corporate farms and manufacturing plants- because if it wasn't for THEM cutting corners and paying off the FDA, WE WOULDN'T BE IN THIS MESS.
