Well, it is mandatory in our State and it is a mess. As far as I can see they are not monitoring it very well....dun":20eyi20k said:I hope it doesn;t become mandatory. I get back a lot more then the couple of bucks the tag costs by having the calves age and source verified.

This has been beat to death. Animal registry is about control. Control is power. Some folks sign up for the easy short term premiums at the sale barn.dieselbeef":1x7l4iov said:voluntary enrollment for animal registry...for tracking in case of an outbreak or notification of an area outbreak

What you do with that letter is your business - but ALWAYS open them.
One thing all you folks out there need to realize ....
You get mail from the various legislative authorities - sometimes they actually WANT you to ignore that mail.
In fact sometimes they hope like he!! you ignore that mail.
That way it can be categorically stated that you have been duly informed by a court recognized method and did not respond.
You know - the vast majority of civil servants are supposed to have your best interests at heart.
Those real nice civil servants - those nice people who work behind the scenes and wear suits and ties - cost my family some very very valuable property about 30 years ago.
My family ignored a letter and opened it a few days later - raced to make a required payment - they had the money to do this.
My Dad tells me they missed the deadline for payment by about one hour.
Courts upheld the deadline.
A real nice federal government building sits on that property now.
Ignore mail at your own risk - remembering at all times there is at least one sender somewhere that WANTS you to ignore it.
I can critique the faults of my family's actions all day - but you look hard enough I bet there is some poor sumbeech in your own neighbourhood that has been screwed by not opening a letter from the feds, the state, the province, the country, the township, the municipality, etc, etc.
Paranoid? Perhaps - but you have no idea what leaving one letter from a gov agency unopened did to some of my family - could be you some day - hope not.
Takes 30 seconds to scan them - we do now.
You take that time - it may save your @ss someday.
On a good note - congrats on being the first guy in your family to be a farmer / rancher. Saw a pic of you and your kid(?) on an old post - you enjoy that family - love them hard my friend.
