Signed. What is going on with this type of legislation? There desperately needs to be a major change in the government's priorities. Let's start serving the people not mega agribusiness.

actually, i don't get it. why would a backyard farmer's animals be crossing state lines? and isn't the point of small farming that customers can buy local. i'm thinking that if this tax passes, small farmers will have incentive to transport only within state lines and, therefore, be better for the animal.

Having a small family farm is an expensive undertaking in it's self. We py exploding land taxes already. How can we shoulder any more?

Animal identification is a vital tool to ensure public safety. It helps identify where contaminated animal products originated with the intent of stopping any outbreaks at the source. Fighting against animal identification is no different than FIGHTING AGAINST CLEAN AIR AND WATER. While the government should try to offset any additional burdens to small farms, this is good legislation and only a fool would stand against it. On the other hand, anyone who likes the idea of dead Americans, including children, should by all means sign whatever idiotic petition they can to fight animal identification.
