i think a lot of smaller cattlemen will throw in the towel when this goes through. Lots of hassle, now you have to do all this and hire an auditor. They just won't do it.

At a Beef workshop I attended a while back stated most independent operations like today will be gone by 2035.

I agree that we don't need this, as an industry we need to remain as independent as possible.

I wish y'all all the best in keeping things like they are in the beef industry. The only down side I see is having the government in your stuff. And their so far in now they can't get the stink off.

Her 10 years ago Extension told people they would have to register their farms and tag the cows. Only know 1 that did then it went away. I will go away when it happens and plant the farm in trees.

This is what you get when you keep taking money from the government, they think you have to listen to them because they are paying you to.

They already killed the swine, chicken, and crop sectors, only logical to do the same to the last stronghold for independent minded farmer.

Control the food, control the people. If you can't see that happening you need glasses.

It's definitely going to happen, because it will justify a whole new level of bureaucratic parasite for the working man to keep in a life of luxury.

I reckon it will take two, maybe three dozen government employees in every county to check tags. If you peeess one off they will seize your cattle and land. If you don't have government approved handling facilities for the silken fingered officials to check your cattle they will be confiscated.

It's going to be boom times in bureaucratville.
