Farm and Ranch Freedom


Austin News Real’s guest Judith McGeary, an attorney and organic farmer, as well as founder of the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance, talks about the National Animal Identification System (NAIS). This program, developed by the big industry giants, requires that any type of live stock animal be registered and tagged. Information on the animals is to be reported to databases owned and controlled by private companies. The entire system is designed to benefit big agribusiness, but it hurts the small and independent farmers.
