Here’s a link to a recording of the Stop NAIS Now! Teleseminar hosted by the Farm-to-Consumer Foundation last month.
Please feel free to forward this recording to others, including this statement in your email:
The Farm-to-Consumer Foundation offers this recording as a free public service, to increase awareness about the problems farmers and consumers face with the National Animal Identification System (NAIS), already mandatory in some states.
The USDA and state departments of agriculture have been aggressively implementing the NAIS across the country. NAIS is an industry-government plan to register farms and tag and track every livestock animal in the country. The Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund has filed a Notice of Intent to Sue the USDA and the Michigan Department of Agriculture, demanding that the agencies stop the program.
This recording features John Carter, past-president of the Australian Beef Association; Judith McGeary, Executive Director of the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance; Gary Cox, General Counsel for the Legal Defense Fund, and other legal experts. These speakers address issues such as the real history of NAIS, who’s making money on it, how it has worked (or not worked) in Australia, recent legislative developments, and what the notice of intent to sue really means.
