    I am sorry if I have posted this in the wrong place.I have gone over the forum several times and dont know where else to ask this.I am wondering if anyone else has read the article in todays New York Times?If I understand it correctly they are going to ban all antibiotics that we as flock owners use to treat our flocks.We will not have access to antibiotics unless they have been prescribed by a vet.Is anyone else shocked by this?

    I'm not shocked. More government control over our lives, just like in Europe.
