04-06-09 Attention Wisconsin
Rep. Scott Suder (R-Abbotsford) introduced legislation last week in Madison that he says will protect the property rights of small family farmers who have recently been taken to court to force them to register their farms with the state.  The northern lawmaker’s bill will make livestock premise registrations voluntary, rather than mandatory in Wisconsin.  
Your support in this bill is critical. NAIS should be Voluntary!


Posted 03-10-09
Apparently Wisconsin doesn't know their own Rules:
On the attached warning letter it states that premises must be registered annually and on the Wisconsin arrest papers stated on the page titled background #6 : Premises registration must be renewed every three years.

Now do you know why Animal Cops is onTV?.. State Animal Cops knocking on your door to serve the people of Wisconsin, papers for failure to register your  "Property" with the Federal Government.   Reason you failed to register your private property for a "Premises ID."   Many more people will be served, here is a copy from one of the farmers.

 The "Official Word":

Penalties for violations of Animal Health Rules or Statutes are listed in Wis. Stats 95.99, potential forfeitures of $200 to $5,000 for the first offense.

Paul J McGraw, DVM
Assistant State Veterinarian
Wisconsin Department of Agriculture,
Trade and Consumer Protection

How will DATCP enforce compliance with registering livestock premises?

Penalties for violations are set by statute. Penalties are equivalent to other animal health and food safety laws, generally $200 to $5,000. There may not be compensation through indemnification without premises registration. Further, if and when the USDA mandates premises registration or all surrounding states impose the same mandate, exhibiting, selling or slaughtering livestock from unregistered premises will be prohibited.


WISCONSIN IS ONLY MANDATORY for PREMISES REGISTRATION for now!!! Animal Id and Animal Tracking have yet to be decided.. Read your laws.
2003 Wisconsin Act 229   Premises Id is known in this law as Premises code.
Chapter ATCP 17 Livestock Premises Registration Page 2 defines the Livestock premises; registration REQUIRED
One final note in small print: The premises code does carry with the land Page 3
A premises code, once assigned to a primary location, normally continues With that location even if the registrant changes. If a registrant adds or removes a secondary location without changing the primary location, the premises code will remain The same.  But if the primary premises location is subdivided among new registrants, The premises code assigned to that location will be retired and a new premises code Will be assigned to each new primary location created by the subdivision.
Please note that the New User Guide on page 22 states that Premises ID stays with the land .


ATTENTION Wisconsin posted 12-30-07

Please attend these meetings and forward this ALERT 

Below you will find the official public hearing notice from DATCP about their proposal for the next implementation phase of the federal National Animal Identification System (NAIS) in Wisconsin. We strongly encourage you to participate in these hearings if you can and to spread the word to others who will be affected by this draconian state surveillance program that is unprecedented - at least in U.S. history.

If you can not attend in person, you can also submit written comments to DATCP. Better yet is to contact your elected officials, write a letter to your local paper, call into talk show radio, and otherwise publicly express your opposition to this program. Based upon our experience organizing farmers and their allies, if even one person speaks up there are about a dozen others who feel the same and then find the courage to add their voice, too.

As many of you may know, Wisconsin has become a national battleground state on NAIS. DATCP and its partner WLIC (which actually administers the program as a private subcontractor) have received millions in taxpayer funding to bring this program into existence, and now many bureaucratic jobs and corporate contracts depend upon its implementation. When over 10% of WI dairy farmers refused to voluntarily register their premises, the state was unable to make good on their threat to pull milk licenses since the state’s economy could not afford to criminalize so many productive farmers overnight.

Nonetheless, DATCP is now denying milk licenses to new dairy farmers, including many Amish who strongly oppose NAIS for religious reasons, even though grass-based Amish dairy operations are one of the fastest growing segments of the entire industry. The proposed rule change would also allow the state to register farmers against their will and without their knowledge. Worse yet, we know that DATCP/WLIC intend to move towards mandatory RFID chipping, phase two of the federal NAIS program, despite recent scientific studies revealing that RFID chips cause cancer, and thus pose a health threat to both livestock and people. A farmer in MI recently had sheriff deputies under state orders enter his land to place RFID chips in his cattle against his will. And then there is the disturbing story of the Faillace family in VT, documented in the book “Mad Sheep,” where a USDA led SWAT team invaded their farm to seize and destroy all of their animals wrongly suspected of harboring some prion type disease.

Family Farm Defenders has been an outspoken critic of NAIS for years now, and recently helped form an organization called Free Wisconsin Pastures with the purpose of filing a lawsuit against DATCP/WLIC/USDA if necessary to stop this absurd program from destroying the future of farming in our state.

For more info on this effort, please visit our website: and look under NAIS

Of course, we would rather NOT have to take this issue to court, which is why it is so paramount that family farmers and others concerned about the future of agriculture in WI exercise their democratic freedom to express their opinion and let our elected officials and DATCP bureaucrats know that NAIS is not acceptable in any form.

Please pass this information along to others and thank you for your support.

Go Wisconsin Farmers...... 1300 Farmers have refused to sign up to NAIS. May 1st was the deadline to register with NAIS... No NAIS NO Picking up the milk.  It appears that Wisconsin backed down... as they should. Wisconsin is a milk and cheese state, can you imigine if everyone dumped there milk. Go Wisconsin Farmers.... 

from the executive director of Family Farm Defenders.

As many of you may know, WI is being used as a guinea pig for implementation of this supposedly "voluntary" national program and to date our state officials have had few qualms about threatening and harrasing farmers who are not willing to give away their freedom of religion and right to privacy.

In particular, dairy farmers across WI have now received up to two separate warning letters from DATCP about the "need" to register their premises, and most recently (Feb. 20th) another letter was sent out at the behest of DATCP by processors and haulers, warning that licenses will be revoked and milk not collected beginning May 1st from unregistered dairy operations.

Obviously, many family farmers are refusing to comply with this demand
and we are in the process of contacting lawyers in the event that anyone is punished on May 1st for not being registered. Those interested in serving as possible plaintiffs in a lawsuit are encouraged to contact our office:

Family Farm Defenders, 1019 Williamson St. #B, Madison, WI 53703
tel./fax. 608-260-0900

Please include your name, address, phone and/or email, your reason for not registering, and copies of any warning letters you may have received from DATCP or other parties related to this matter.

Thanks - John E. Peck, executive director

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
