Attention New Zealand Farmers, apparently 40 farmers in New Zealand are concerned with taxes being applied on cows and pigs  via the clean air act. Well be warned the USA is now presenting it to the public. Read it here: Sustainable Development and or Agenda 21 
 
 

National Animal Identication and Tracing

Why is it that no one is questioning why all nations are implementing a Animal Identification System in there country?

Its really not about disease its all about TRADE Agreements and there wording. Let me put it it this way.. Trade is worth billions of dollars. Read the next sentence and you will see why the animal Id scheme is being implemented.

Aims to ensure that governments do not use quarantine and food safety requirements as Unjustified trade barriers to protect domestic industries from import competition. It provides Member countries with a right to implement traceability as an SPS measure http://www.oie.int/eng/publicat/rt/2002/WILSON.PDF


That is why the push for Country of Origin Labeling/traceability. They are trying to justify the reason for the Animal Identification System-NAIS for the USA, NAIT for New Zealand on the control of diseases buts its all about its all about trade and the "harmonizing" of standards to a much LOWER standard that we have come to know in the USA. Every single article brings up that one BSE case and the perceived threat of Foot and Mouth I will bring up the recalls that have made news in recent times here in the USA such as hundreds of brands of pet food, some very well known brands, such as Hills, Iams, Eukanuba, that we deemed as safe and paid a much higher price are now deemed with mistrust. This food was made with melamine that killed family members even though some people consider them just animals. Then we have toys made from lead paint, lead paint which was banned in the Nation of the United States of America and now its on everything made for children even bibs. Can you trust the MADE in China dinner plates you now find in every retailer, are they lead based? Even the drug heprin was recalled that is a product used to save people but yet killed people due to the lowering of standards. Then there was the use of antifreeze in tooth paste, antifreeze is known to kill pets but it was in human products.

As stated before safety is considered a trade barrier, that is why these products have made it to the nearest retailer that you also once placed your trust in. No amount of labeling no amount of RFID use, No amount of written words or promises will take the place of TESTING and QUARANTINE. Your life depends on those 2 words not "harmonization of standards." Food trust will not be restored as much as industry wants it so badly. Industry is about globalization and the lowering of standards per the World Trade Agreements, until people realize that globalization can kill you, labeling and tagging won't do a thing, it will be to late by then. Safety is considered a Trade Barrier. The lowering of standards also affect jobs which since NAFTA was implemented has sent our good paying job overseas to developing nations which we call redistribution of wealth and has shut down over 6 million farms.

New Zealand animal Id is no different then the USA animal Id or the Canadian animal Id, or the EU animal Id. It all amounts to shipping in with out any trade barriers due to quarantine or inspection. If a disease of concern is suspected that animal will be traced and all animals within that area will be depopulated. Period

New Zealand is a member to the United Nations, and under the UN your country will be under OIE rules. OIE is very similar to the USDA here in the USA.

Your food supply that use to be considered safe will no longer be safe. Your animals will no longer be safe.

Read this on Australia and see how quarantine is now being used against Australia because it is not "scientifically based." Australia is no different then New Zealand the land is islands, surrounded by water and due to trade you will have diseases of concern that will hit all due to TRADE. Nothing will be safe. Fight the NAIT!!

The longer it takes to implement a national stock traceability system, the more the New Zealand economy is at risk of a disease outbreak like foot and mouth, Livestock Improvement chairman Stuart Bay said today.

Mr Bay said livestock farming provided about 40 per cent of New Zealand's exports but the country was "lagging the field" when it came to tracking animal movements.

The implementation of a national animal traceability programme was vital, he said, to protect the integrity of New Zealand's animal products, processes and management systems and to give certainty to the farming and export sectors and before a biosecurity out-break occurred.

Speaking at LIC's annual meeting in Hamilton today, Mr Bay called for more government leadership on establishing a system, which, although the focus of an industry group, has been put back.

National Animal Identification and Tracing (NAIT) was set up two years ago.

It signalled that national traceability would soon be a requirement for all New Zealand livestock industries.

Initially NAIT indicated that, by around 2008, it would be mandatory for the cattle and deer sectors to have a traceability system operational, and set 2007 as the date for voluntary implementation.

"The voluntary date has been and gone and our best guess, today, is that the mandatory date has moved back to 2009," Mr Bay said.

LIC has developed its own dairy cattle tracking system, MINDA.

"What is needed is one, effective system that does not duplicate infrastructure or cost for farmers," Mr Bay said.

Premises Registration will be an "Official" USDA unique seven Character identifier.
 
In the New User Guide it states on Page 22:
The premises identification number (PIN) is assigned permanently to a geophysical location. If an owner or entity sells his/her farm, the next operators of the premises use the original premises identification number that had been
assigned to that location. If the seller buys a new location to build a new operation that never had livestock, he/she would register that location and obtain a new premises identification number (PIN).

Premises Identification = Encumbrance
