Hooray, Kill it, its too expensive, intrusive and unnecessary for most of the livestock industry. Now get rid of the biggest joke at the USDA: the Scrapie program.
The problem with giving it to the states is that Wisconsin has been the most intrusive of the states and has a history of making anything the feds have more controlling and restrictive. They are killing us. Under the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Comsumer Protection (DATCP) we have lost our lead in dairy and farms are leaving everyday and a large part of it is the regulations that prevent almost everything while they pick our pockets. If NAIS is dead, kill the premise ID, stop the prosecution of the farmers who have resisted it.
