Premises ID & NAIS Dead in Vermont

Mandatory Premises ID registration and the USDA’s proposed National Animal Identification System (NAIS) are dead in Vermont! See this article for more details.

In a nutshell, which is where these programs belongs, the Vermont Agency of Agriculture (AoA) has finally heard the enormous protest against the program and said they are letting the proposal for mandatory Premises ID expire and will not share information with the feds thus killing NAIS at the same time.

It is unnecessary to violate our rights and privacy in order to control animal disease. The government should focus on education and being polite. The VT AoA is one 800 lb guerilla that just learned it can’t sit anywhere it pleases.
