Viva Las Vegas! - Page 86

post #851 of 857
Ladies and Gentlemen, That time has finally come!!! The Nevada NPIP program is up and running and you can now submit your applications!!! Once your application is processed, I will be dispatched to you to do your certification testing. I would highly advise everyone to check the box to have your birds tested for Avian Influenza as well. It's free and covered by a USDA grant. When filling out the form, you will see a section labeled "Primary use of flock". The majority will answer "Fancier/egg production". If you have any questions as to how to fill out the form let me know. All payments, as well as your forms, will need to be sent to the address on the form. I am not able to do this. It has to be done through the state. Once you have sent your document in, it is important that you let me know so I can follow up to make sure your application is processed ASAP. After that, it will be myself solely that will be coming to your property, as I am the only Poultry Inspector in the State. This has been a very very long time coming and I have worked my ***** off to get this program off the ground and running. I hope that many of you will take advantage of this program and I hope to see many of you soon to test your birds. This is another big milestone in the effort to normalize owning backyard chickens and to strengthen the health of the birds in our community.
 
You can find the form here:

I'm just posting this as a warning for all of So. Nevada.  Please be careful who you sell your livestock to!  I would hate for anybody to have to go through what I have been through in the last few months!  These are links to posts in my FB group.

NDgoatgirl, tried following your link and unfortunately it says it can't be displayed because I don't have permission to view - could you post a screenshot of what you are trying to let us see?

Here's an odd ? from a clueless Midwestern gal:

Are the pretty rosemary bushes you having growing around Las Vegas the same kind of rosemary we buy at the grocery store?

 

In N. Illinois, I plant rosemary every year to use for cooking.  It of course dies before the snow hits & we must replant every year. (I'm horrible with house plants, so I have no idea how big they can get.)  When visiting my MIL in Henderson, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a bush of rosemary.  That is why I am asking if it is the same species.

Wow, this is an old post but I guess you can tell it's been a while since I've been on. The answer to your question is yes. The upright and creeping rosemary you see around town is indeed the same type/species as what you cook with. Our climate is very friendly to most Mediterranean plants. They thrive.
