Welcome to the blog, Colorado Preppers. Prepping doesn't mean we think the apocolypse is coming or the earth will blow up. It simply means that we are preparing for any eventuality that may strike here in Colorado (USA) ... from swine/bird flu to blizzards to global financial collapse to loss of income and more. // Come learn with us about things like water purifying and collecting, inventory checks and more. However, we are NOT political and not affiliated with any specific religion or group. // FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE GO TO WWW.SURVIVAL-COOKING.BLOGSPOT.COM OR TO FIND OUT ABOUT MY BOOKS ON THESE AND OTHER TOPICS, GO TO WWW.VIKKI-LAWRENCE-WILLIAMS.BLOGSPOT.COM

Farm Animals To Require Tracking

Did you know that legislation is being passed, without American citizenship participation or debate, about chipping our livestock?

I just got my May/June 2009 issue of the Backwoods Home Magazine, and started flipping through it. An article, "The Coming American Dictatorship Part X", that started on page 31 caught my eye. I started reading, thought it surely had to be a joke, went back and re-read it. I went online and researched it. OMG - it appears to be true!

Check out http://animalid.aphis.usda.gov/nais/

Basically a bill is being pushed through that requires all farm animals bred for consumption (including chickens, etc.) to be chipped so the government can track them. Every chicken. Every baby chick just hatched. We'll have to report new births, transfer of animals by sale or otherwise, when they are butchered, are eaten by coyotes, etc. If we don't report accurately or choose non-compliance, and need to take our non-chipped chicken to the vet, s/he will be required to report us to the government.

The website says that if the animal is not to leave the premises, or to be taken from your premises directly to slaughter, it doesn't need registering. I'm thinking... "for now".

They say it's for the safety of people who will consume the animals. They also say...

To protect the health of U.S. livestock and poultry and the economic well-being of those industries, we must be able to quickly and effectively trace an animal disease to its source. When a disease outbreak occurs, animal health officials need to know:

  • Which animals are involved in a disease outbreak
  • Where the infected animals are currently located
  • What other animals might have been exposed to the disease

By choosing to participate in NAIS, you will join a national disease response network built to protect your animals, your neighbors, and your economic livelihood against the devastation of a foreign animal disease outbreak.

Notice they say "you WILL"... leaving little wiggle room. This isn't protection of our food sources. Those hatcheries with 100,000 chickens won't be required to chip each hen - just one for the group! Nope, this is, in my opinion, yet another instance of government interference, and loss of liberty.

We HAVE to do something! Below are some contact numbers and addresses. Pass along a link to this article/blog posting, and get people calling and writing and e-mailing. Have schoolteachers get their students to practice letter writing by assigning this as a project. Make sure every state in this country starts working against this.

Here's a link to the NAIS' feedback form - let's flood them with HELL NO-type feedback messages, shall we? http://animalid.aphis.usda.gov/nais/contact_us/general.shtml - this is what I wrote: Homesteaders with just a few chickens and a goat (or other small amounts of livestock) will NOT stand for this nonsense. Do NOT push this through. How dare you!

Pass the word... we have work to do!

This is the bill that worries us, and my husband wishes for me to scrub my blog clean of the animals...none of their business. If the corporations that allow us to eat a fallen cow, only need one chip then the entire base of small farmers and ranchers only need one chip.

The disease and illness come from the big corp. and not the small guy, as they can afford to allow sickness, but we nip it in the bud, as our animals are most likely tied to our diet/health, and our livelyhood.

Thanks for the addresses

Wow, that was a lot of work on your part--thanks for listing the addresses! How is this going to be pushed through--on a state level? Who will decide whether this will actually happen or not? If it hasn't yet been put into practice, do you know when they plan to put it into practice?
Sorry about all the questions--inquiring minds want to know... :)Thank you very much for putting this info out there, because people have to know about it in order to speak up.

This is completely off-topic, but I just wanted you and your blog to be aware of a great deal I found...sorry I couldn't find another place to post generic comments! Anyhow, I'm not sure if you've had the chance to learn about Life Caps...the survival pill that sustains life if you can't get to food. I have a code for their products that may be of interest to your readers. The following code can be used at www.lifecaps.net to receive $10 off per bottle of Life Caps. The code is: Good Life. I hope this helps someone...they have really helped me and are great for 72-hour kits and emergency supplies!

Marie, NAIS is being implemented at both the federal and the state level. So far, USDA has issued guidance documents and funded State programs. Now, there is a lot of talk of mandating the program NAIS at the federal level, in part based on food safety fears (although NAIS does nothing to improve food safety).

So the decisionmakers are both state and federal legislators. And the time is now!

Refuse to register our farm or chip any animals and if they don't like it - just stop by the farm one day and we will show them! Tryanny must be stopped and we all need to take a stand for our freedom to grow our own food!
