    Darn, just got these replies off the list this morning :(:

    "I had heard this too and was very hopeful at first... but I learned from my Missourians Against NAIS list that NAIS itself is NOT suspended. What was suspended was the entering into Privacy Act records of all NAIS information. So it is misleading."

    "
    No, it does not stop NAIS. It makes it illegal for the USDA to share its
    data with other departments of the government, but it does not stop them
    compiling information, or going forward with its implementation. It is a
    good first strike against NAIS, is as the MI lawsuit. Rulings and suits like
    these show the flaws in the program and the way it has been instituted. We
    need to remain vigilant and proactive. With so many people working together,
    albeit from different directions, we are making progress, but we're not done
    yet. Sorry."


    Its a start though!!

    yes it certainly is a start.

    now that a precident is starting to form it will help other lawsuits etc against it

    raise havoc
    i did
    when i had goats shipped in from eliya i got caught in the NAIS web
    i wrote too many letters to count to everyone from my mayor to the president of the US and everyone in between including every fair board in NYS
    and i made sure to put CC's at the bottom of every letter so they knew who else was getting the letter
    i only heard back from my assembly man but he assured me that he was looking into it :roll:
    and about a month later i got another letter from him and one from the head of NAIS that my name was sticken (not sure if i really believe this tho) from all NAIS databases
    it's a start
    everyone needs to raise havoc and let all the gov't know what we think about NAIS
    so far, at my fair, a tattoo is still accepted as ID and we don't need NAIS or scrapie

    How did you get signed up when you shipped goats? Was it because Eliya's from WI?
