Received in the mail today a packet from Penn State wanting us to put an "X" on the map they sent to where we live and tell them how many and what animals we have. We only have a small homestead..no big dairy farm here. It is so if there is an animal disease outbreak they can locate all of us to "protect" us and our animals ? I don't like the idea of anyone knowing what animals I raise. Will it come to the point that I won't be able to sell my animals at public auction, buy feed at the local feed store, or have a vet come to the homestead or show my animals at the fair in the summer unless I have their identification number. I'm thinking..does history repeat itself...WW II. etc. Just makes you wonder...or am I getting paranoid ???
