Government enforced animal ID (ADT) still holds a glorious carrot in front of every ID electronics manufacturer. Just think, if it were the law that 700,000,000 cattle in the USA had to have an electronic ear tag implanted that costs $2 each, do the math. What do the manufacturers stand to gain if this becomes the law of the land. Consider next year’s 400,000,000 calves that would demand an ID. There are so many semi loads of money that every bureaucrat in Washington could be generously rewarded with his on load.

Realizing there is less disease in the USA than ever before and that every livestock owner already had an ID system in place, we don’t need it.
