3.0 out of 5 stars do you want to tell the govt everywhere your critters go? December 25, 2007
NAIS is a marketing plan that will benefit corporate agriculture but put a heavy burden on those who own even one farm animal (parakeets are included in Texas) whether it is a pet or for food. Under NAIS those who own even one livestock must sign up their property and get a "premises" number. But people are not being told the whole story. Once they sign up for NAIS, they may no longer hold true property title, they become a "stakeholder" on a "premises". Then they bear the cost of microchipping that animal and filing reports on its movements.
Those are the words in the NAIS document. Contracts use certain words for a reason. (see any law library for definitions on these words.) see for what NAIS is.

Under NAIS all animal birth, death and off property movments must be reported within 24 hours or face huge fines ($1000/day in Texas)
Again factory farms do not have to do this. Only small producers (or those who own one chicken for a pet!)

If animal disease is suspected in an area, a 6 mile radius can be depopulated, even the healthy animals that had no contact with the supposed disease.
