National Animal Identification System

Being the owner of a small herd of goats, one sheep, soon to be two and a small flock of chickens, I'm just not too sure I like this whole National Animal ID System thing our government is planning on laying on us. Talk about Big Brother!
I learned of this on the Happy Homesteader Blog on the online Mother Earth News. You can read the article here. If you agree with me that this isn't the way to go, be sure to speak out against NAIS. This is all about protecting large agri business and smothering out the small time farmers and ranchers. Let's not let this happen.

Another OUTRAGE from our ever more oppressive government. CPSIA favors big business masked as a safety measure "for our children", and now this!
Next stop: confiscation of animals from homesteaders? Where will it end?

I don't know much about this but my CA friends are all in an uproar about it. I will look into it more! Thanks for the head's up.
