The USDA is Sued for Collecting Records on Livestock Owners

Freelance journalist Mary Zanoni is suing the USDA for collecting records on livestock owners across the country. The USDA is constructing a directory for these owners known as the National Premises Information Repository, as part of the National Animal Identification System. They claim that the records apply to an exemption in the Freedom of Information Act, and can be kept from the public. Originally published as "Is Your Donkey in Their Database?"
