NAIS (National Animal Identification System:

I attended the Listening Session regarding this proposal in Raleigh last week.  NAIS is far from dead.

Please contact your representatives to oppose this system.  You can read more on the sites below.

Please copy this info and send to your e-mail contacts and post on your other discussion groups.

HR 2749:

Please read about HR 2749 at the links below.  It may come up for a vote in the house any day.

This bill unfairly treats small farms the same as large factory farms.  The second link below has a sample letter to one's elected representatives.  It deals with North Carolina, but really would be applicable to most states.

Please write to your representatives!  You can do this by e-mail at the first  or second links below.

How can you unfairly treat two farms the same?
