The Washington State Department of Agriculture has sent letters to
livestock organizations in the state, asking for help in registering private
land where animals are raised,
part of an animal identification system
that's being considered.
In the letters, the
WSDA offers to pay the organization $10 for each
premises registration it obtains by the end of the year. Registering
and voluntary for landowners, but participation in the program has been
The letters are part
of a WSDA campaign to boost participation in the
program, Chris Spaulding, an animal identification specialist with the
in Olympia, said in a telephone interview.
The money to pay the groups for the registrations
comes from a $141,000
grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to help the state with an
intensive outreach project
supporting animal identification efforts. The
grant is also earmarked for 4-H, FFA, Cooperative Extension and other

Other states are using a similar tactic
to boost enrollments, Spaulding
said. And the USDA may also give it a try.
Spaulding declined to discuss premises

is the first step in a plan that aims to register
private land where animals are located, and then to identify and track
of the animals.
The Washington State Dairy Federation will participate in the program to
help the WSDA register
premises, said Jay Gordon, a dairy producer and
executive director of the federation in Elma.
Jack Field, executive
vice president of the Washington Cattlemen's
Association, said the WCA executive committee would likely discuss the
offer at its Oct. 17 meeting.
At least one organization, the Cattle Producers of Washington,
down the WSDA offer.
"It is very discouraging that WSDA is failing
to listen to its constituency
on this issue and seems intent on forging ahead with a program that is so
by cattle producers," Lee Engelhardt, a Moses Lake cow-calf
producer and CPoW president, said in an news release.
said producers need to know more about the proposed program and
how it will be managed, as well as its costs and benefits.
Why is the USDA hiding the program from the public? Why is the media not reporting of this program?
