    USDA issues memo mandating NAIS premises registration for all federally
    regulated disease control programs

    A new memo out of USDA shows they are pushing ahead with NAIS despite the public
    protests and even state laws barring mandatory programs.

    USDA recently issued a memo to its "Veterinary Services Management Team" that
    requires NAIS premises registration for various disease program activities.
    (Veterinary Services Memorandum No. 575.19, posted on our Government Documents
    Page at http://farmandranch freedom.org/ content/Governme nt-documents )

    The memo includes activities such as vaccinations, testing, and applying
    official ear tags, for programs for every livestock species, ranging from
    brucellosis to scrapies to equine infectious anemia. The memo says that people
    who refuse to have their farms registered will be registered against their
    will. Thus, USDA has officially abandoned the supposed "voluntary" nature of
    NAIS. Now animal owners who take government-required steps such as testing and
    vaccinating their animals may find themselves enrolled in the NAIS premises
    registration database with or without their consent.

    Ann from nonais.org has President Elect Obama's website address, asking for people's input about NAIS. go tell them what you think about it, but please be polite! we have to get this thing stopped!!!

  4. Looks like the page has been taken down from Obama's website. That doesn't look like a good sign.
