Why am I sending you there? What is NAIS? Who cares?
I am sending you there because she has put the information in a clear, easy to understand manner.... I can't improve it ~ so why try. Click on her link!
The NAIS is "National Animal Identification System". One more governmental control on how we supply food to ourselves..... basically a system to shut down small self sustaining farmers and homesteaders.
This is from No NAIS . org
1. NAIS does NOTHING to address food safety issues from the
processor to the consumer.it simply moves the burden from corporate meat
packers, who don’t follow the rules, to independent livestock producers.
Missouri’s Family Farmers believe it is extremely important to ensure consumer
confidence in the safety and health of the U.S. food supply while at the same
time ensuring the economic viability of independent livestock producers.But NAIS
does not meet the needs of producers or consumers.
3. The majority (>92%)
of family farmers in Missouri (and the rest of the nation) are opposed to
4. The Truth About Animal ID.: Creates an undue economic burden on
producers, does not include identification of imported meats, does nothing to
increase consumer choice or confidence, expands packers ability to unfairly
discriminate against family farmers.There is alot of information about NAIS out there... research it yourself.Why should you care? You have to eat too.... where does your food come from? How expensive has it become to feed your family? How wholesome are the foods you eat? Does government control too much already?I want to be able to have a cow and milk it and drink the milk..... if the USDA has their way ..... the small homestead is history!
