This response is from Mary Zanoni, Downsizedc.org has sent out an
alert on this 
 
Everyone respond to your Senators, your Reps and Governor!

On p. 14 of this document we have a hint about a very dangerous
game that the USDA may be intending to play with our way of life and
our ability to keep livestock. The last paragraph on page 14
describes a recommendation that this Committee of the USAHA has made
to the USDA:

Two recommendations were considered by the Committee. The following
recommendation was approved by the Committee.
 
That USDA-APHIS-VS with input from the National Assembly of State
Animal Health Officials (NASAHO), promulgate an interim rule that
establishes a list of Consistent States for Cattle Identification.
The rule would provide for restriction of interstate movements other
than direct to slaughter from non-consistent states. The rule would
specify that consistent states have established by law, rule, order,
or other means requirements that all breeding age cattle be
officially identified by means of official tag or registration brand
or tattoo at each change of ownership, other than movements direct to
slaughter, or movements through one approved market and then direct
to slaughter. Further, that consistent states have import
requirements that all such cattle be officially identified prior to
import or at first point of concentration. Consistent states may
grant waivers for such requirements for interstate movements which
are part of normal operating business with no change of ownership and for seasonal grazing/feeding as agreed to by the state
and federal animal health officials of the states involved. Further,
that this interim rule be promulgated prior to July 1, 2007. In
addition, the Committee recommends that a follow-up rule be
promulgated prior to July 1, 2008, that establishes consistent states
as those that have in place similar requirements for breeding aged
cattle upon change of ownership for feeding or grazing.
Report Of The Committee On Livestock Identification
 
The Committee has recommended that, prior to July 1, 2007, the USDA
should promulgate an ‚?ointerim rule‚?Ě that would prohibit
interstate movement of cattle from any state that fails to REQUIRE
THAT ALL BREEDING AGE CATTLE BE OFFICIALLY IDENTIFIED at each change of ownership. Such an ‚?ointerim rule‚?Ě would make it impossible for
any state to resist, because it would become economically isolated.
Also note that an ‚?ointerim rule‚?Ě can be promulgated WITH NO PRIOR
OPPORTUNITY FOR PUBLIC COMMENT.
 
Is the USDA planning to follow this Committee recommendation and
force NAIS upon the entire nation by means of a dictatorial ‚?
ointerim rule‚?Ě? It is bad enough that the USDA has been killing off
American agriculture for decades; don‚?Tt let them kill off democracy.

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
