More Information will be coming as Nais is just now beginning! It won't be cheap!! 

The very first reported Cost of NAIS and we as taxpayers get to help pay for it again!!!!!
The Australian version of NAIS ... The $3 promised cost per cow went to $37

That reminded me... at our Steering Committee meeting today, ARAPA
President Steenbergen told me that his brother had gone along with the
state to tag his cattle. The state told his brother that they would pay
for half of the cost to get him going - readers, headgate, tags, etc.
When it was all said and done, the brother paid $3,500 for his half of
the bill. The rest of the story?

That grand total of $7,000 to set this man up was for a whole THIRTY
ONE COWS. !!!! Do you know how much that works out per cow? You do the
math - I'm not doing it for you. LOL! Needless to say, the brother was
not happy when it was all said and done - and as a tax payer, this kind
of report doesn't make me happy, either.

On 01-28-07 I Responded

That is one hell of deal for us taxpayers now this needs to get out. 225.00 per cow with the help of the Good Ole USDA. 112.00 per cow on the brothers part.  Good grief, Well people we might as well just bend over.

You did know that the USDA said it would only cost $2.00 per animal Right???

On page 39 of "The Goat Magazine" the IKGA prices for Microchips are

A reader is $285.00 plus $8.00 shipping
Box of 25 is $85.00 plus 7.50 shipping

These are member prices. Non-member seem to be about 15% higher.
A might bit more expensive than the good old boys at TAHC were telling

How much for a horse, well Avid's Lost and found chips are running $60.00 oops lets add the farm call, the vet call , Pretty good deal $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

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
