Karen, before you panic and start thinking eartags on horses, READ the plan.
There is currently nothing in the plan for horses. That is still being
developed. The entire NAIS is being developed WITH input from the livestock
industry, including horse owners. Now, the reporting of movement, I believe
is for sale of animals, not use, The idea is to be able to track an animal
from birth to plate, or detection of disease, such as BSE within hours, not
days or weeks.

Subject: [MSAR] NAIS
I have been reading a lot of hype about the NAIS, most of it not good
because it is catching the small owners in the crosshairs of big business
and government...Anyone care to comment on this because it is going to
effect all of us as horse , dog or animal owners and all activities therein,
including MSAR to the point that you cannot even take your aninmals off your
premise without either a premise id or an individual animal tag of some
description and I have yet to hear of any horsemen favoring the use of
eartags on their horses which is the governments current proposal. The costs
of this program to are an econimical disaster....of course, state to state
things differ and once again, no continuity is harmful.
