From tracking animals to tracking man -- Derry Brownfield
Digital Angel certainly is in the beast (ie., livestock) marking business in a big way. And now they want to take this beast marking technology and use it on people.....
"The expansion of the application from an animal to a person was relatively simple to patent-legally.
This transition is supported by evolutionist- biology, where a human being is classified as a higher mammal, and thus the problem is solved.
Don Small, vice-president of Hughes Identification Devices stated,
" Let's define an animal as a mammal, and that settles it."

Just as NAIS is for animals , so will VeriChip be for citizens of planet Earth Susana Schwartz
' We need to retain the freedoms we are losing in the name of "freedom."
"The centralization of data about our animals and food supply, as well as our buying habits and travel patterns, will only open us up to illicit sources. Companies like Microsoft and entities like the federal government are not very proficient at managing and protecting the data they already have at their disposal. Localization, or the proliferation of federated, local pools of data are more difficult to infiltrate or abuse, and they do a lot more to protect our freedoms and privacies as individuals entitled to the protections of the Constitution. The right to anonymity should also be inherent. I will not implant metal and glass transponders in my person, or that of my children or animals. "
This will price me and others out of the business, and it will also take away the freedoms we are supposed to have to travel and move as we wish without labels or possibility of being "tracked."
NAIS and animal disease
Amish protest "mark of the beast" for animals "premise ID " law
While meeting in an auction barn on Irish Ridge near Cashton, a number of Amish producers cited specific Bible passages (Revelations chapter 13, verse 7 and chapter 19, verse 20) that refer to buying and selling of animals that are numbered and consider it the "mark of the beast." And for some producers it comes down to some strongly held beliefs versus continuing with their livelihood.
As one producer put it, "Look at all the electronic gadgets in the world, have they done more good for the American family or have they done more evil?"
as of May 1 [ 2007 ] it will not be possible for any dairy producer to renew their dairy license without a premise identification number.
"Does the fact that many of you were unaware you even had the number give you a clean conscious religiously on this?" asked Kapanke.
Comment from John Sherrer
Leave the Amish alone! We should ALL strive for Rugged Individualism, and to live and let others live as they see fit without harming a hair of another. Anyone who would believe the the advocates of NAIS are for our "own good" are very naive indeed. NAIS is for the benefit of corporate businesses and none else. The arrogance on the part of the USDA is appalling and infuriating! Leave the Amish alone! They are among the richest people left on earth -- far more rich than the stuffy Donald Trumps when it comes to the gifts of life that really matter. They help add color and individualism to this increasingly bland nation filled with sterile strip malls, Walmarts and McDonalds. Long Live the Amish and small farmers -- it is THEM that made our country so admirable and the envy of the world not so long ago.
"Like the branding of the Jews in WWII Germany, the enumeration of People and their Chattle is the sign of a Fascist, Totalitarian Government. What is hoped to be gained by controlling diseases which are already being controlled by other, less intrusive means? What is to be gained by protecting us from "terrorism" if our own government become the terrorists? The state goons in charge of implementing NAIS are criminals violating laws while trying to bolster numbers. The Amish should withdraw from the dairy who signed them up against their will. It's criminal. What idiot thought that would work? If you have a moral and ethical objection to something then you are in the right. Period. If you cannot stand for your values--whatever they are--and have a firm conviction than you are just another one of the faceless, soulless sheeple. American is full of that animal--they are the ones who need to be tagged and tracked as a threat to freedom and the Constitution. Let the disease infested industrial food complex--e. coli 0157 beef, salmonella peanut butter, tapeworm Mexican pork--find their own way out of the mess they've created by charging more to serve us less and less quality which is greatly compromised. We don't need they're form of food security or tracking. A local food system where buyers know producers and the food is never more than a few days or hours old and does not travel 2000 miles, but less than 500, is the only thing to provide bio, food security and disease outbreak prevention. With every farm enumerated, and all livestock tallied, at the first hint of chicken sniffles or a coughing cow everyone who has will-lessly participated in NAIS will wake up to the "depopulation" of their animals, "for the good of the nation", without testing or confimation of anything wrong. There goes our local economies, our national food system and Hello, cheap, imported foods. . . .until there is an embargo on the US. Wake up America, it's already too late but things can still be done. This isn't about the Amish getting away with anything (else) or religious freedom of a certain sect. This is about our personal freedom to choose and our National freedom to live as Americans. Fight NAIS everywhere before it gets worse."

( mostly free ) and STANDARDIZATION
30,000 Free "read-any-chip" scanners ( work for people as well as dogs)
Ed: They sure would come in handy for humans in case of a crisis ...what a coincidence !
"The Crystal Import Corporation, the U.S. distributor of DATAMARS SA, a leading manufacturer of radio frequency identification microchips, today announced the donation of 20,000 scanners capable of reading or detecting both 134.2 kHz and 125 kHz microchips [ Ed: same as for VeriChip for people ] to shelters and veterinary hospitals across the nation. Additionally, The Crystal Import Corp. will offer a free scanner to up to 10,000 shelters and veterinarians with a purchase of 20 RFID microchips for a total commitment of 30,000 scanners
This announcement comes in response to recent action in Congress and through the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) that calls for appropriate regulations to allow for an open radio frequency identification technology system that would enable a scanner to read all microchips used for the identification (http://www.readallchips.com),of pets in the United States. Currently APHIS is considering the adoption of the ISO (International Standards Organization) standard.
Banfield wholeheartedly supports a transition to the ISO standard and we applaud the Crystal Import Corporation's donation of scanners that can read the ISO 134.2 kHz and read or detect all the different 125 kHz microchips that we know of. As the U.S. moves forward in adopting an ISO standard, Crystal is taking the next crucial step with this donation; providing a way for shelters and veterinarians to obtain free scanners that can read virtually any chip," said Scott Campbell, DVM, Banfield Chairman and CEO."

Must register pet chickens etc.
Government and Digital Angel working hand in hand
NAIS does not protect against "mad cow" disease
Judith McGeary, a founder of the Liberty Ark Coalition, and Executive Director of the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance. She says: "NAIS will not benefit cattle, farmers, or consumers. Rather, NAIS will create profits for the companies that make the microchips and radio tags, while American consumers will see the price of their beef rise, without any additional safety."
There is no legitimate need for the USDA to launch this massive tracking system. Brand laws, ear tags, and sales records already provide an adequate traceback system that has been used successfully for years. If the goal of the USDA is truly to protect the food supply chain, then the focus should be placed on the packing industry, not on the producer.
Digital Angel : Meat trace-back
SO. ST. PAUL, Minn. - (Business Wire) Digital Angel .... announced today the importance of implementing a national animal identification system that provides prompt trace-back following the largest beef recall in United State's history. The system includes electronic radio frequency identification (RFID) tags and scanners that work in conjunction with databases to register livestock information and quickly isolate any problem discovered in an animal from birth through slaughter and distribution, including bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE)
"This latest and largest beef recall underscores the importance of a National Animal Identification System (NAIS). As adoption among producers evolves from visual to electronic identification, the status of the food supply will become increasingly safe." [ quote by Joseph Grillo ]
Randolph K. Geissler, President of Digital Angel's animal applications business, said, The nation's demand for meat products is becoming more and more complicated because of the co-mingling of livestock required to meet this demand."
Digital Angel is also the first animal tag manufacturer to be designated as an Animal Identification (AIN) tag manufacturer by the USDA, which signifies that the Company's tagging system is capable of identifying livestock with the unique, lifetime animal identification number that is being established as a national standard through the NAIS.
Digital Angel is the owner of a majority position in VeriChip Corporation (NASDAQ: CHIP).
DA's Destron Fearing PVC tags -- Process Verified Program
Digital Angel Corporation ... announced today that Superior Livestock Auction, the pioneer and leader in marketing load-l of cattle via satellite and the Internet, has selected Digital Angel's animal applications unit, Destron Fearing, to manufacture an exclusive tag for its new PVP (Process Verified Program) program Superior Verified
Superior Verified provides age and source verification to help producers differentiate their cattle with buyers and leverage that data to take advantage of a broader range of marketing options, a key factor in capturing the value of production information.
Furthermore, producers that participate in Superior Verified don't have to invest in a wand reader or enter tag numbers into a database. Qualified producers simply provide the program's data provider, IMI Global, with supporting documents (calving records, etc.) and place the tag in each animal's ear.
Old Big Brother Had a farm
"The program is largely based on a plan developed in 2002 through an industry-government collaborative effort facilitated by NIAA." NIAA represents, among others, the biggest meat producers in the U.S., including Cargill Meat Solutions and the National Pork Producers Council, and the makers of high-tech animal-ID equipment, such as Micro Beef Technologies and Digital Angel. The latter group, needless to say, could benefit directly from a nationwide animal-ID program
The program -- which is thus far voluntary, but could eventually become mandatory -- is designed to unfold in three stages. ....
First, farmers and producers would register the barns, factories, slaughterhouses, and even homes where their animals -- be they 10,000 cows, a dozen chickens, or a single potbellied pig -- reside and are processed.
Second, animals born or living on those premises would be assigned a 15-digit federal ID number and a tag -- in some cases, an implanted radio-frequency identification (RFID) device. But producers of certain species such as chickens and swine that are bought, moved, and slaughtered in big groups could be allowed to identify an entire lot with a single ID number -- a less time-intensive and expensive process. Critics argue that since factory farms are in the business of mass production of animals, this would present them with a cost advantage. Miller says this is a loophole that effectively "renders the whole program moot."
Third, data on each animal's whereabouts would be compiled [ Ed: into a database ] and regularly updated in a centralized computer network, which the USDA expects to be up and running on a national scale by 2009 at the earliest. The department has suggested that animals' RFID tags could eventually be tracked real-time by a Global Positioning System, but there is no clear time frame for this scenario.
Zanoni sums up the views of many independent farmers: "Real food security comes from raising food yourself or buying from a local farmer you actually know. The USDA plan will only stifle local sources of production through over-regulation and unmanageable costs."
National Animal Database System --to be UNIVERSALLY compatible
Digital Angel Corp. ... announced today that it has accelerated its plans to introduce a national database system that will provide for the registration, tracking and source verification of all livestock tagged with electronic radiofrequency identification (RFID) tags throughout the United States.
The Company also plans to work with the USDA, NCBA (National Cattleman's Beef Association), the National Pork Producers Council and other industry leaders to make this database (and/or other complementary databases) a standard for the industry, said Digital Angel President and CEO Kevin N. McGrath
Our system, backed by our nearly 60 years in the livestock tagging business and our international experience in building tagging and scanning technology, is intended to be universally compatible with a system which the United States Department of Agriculture will ultimately define and perhaps deploy as a national identification system for livestock."
The database will be housed in the Company's South Saint Paul offices and will be accessible by livestock producers via the Internet. The Company is currently working with other companies that could participate in the deployment of the system.
First they came for the animals ...... reading between the lines

A High-Tech Race to Corral Mad Cow
Another option would be to encode identification data into microchips that are implanted in the cows' ears or under their skin. Like RFID tags, these chips could be read by handheld scanners. And some day they might provide other benefits. St. Paul (Minn.)-based Digital Angel Corp. (DOC ) sells implantable chips for livestock, as well as for pet cats and dogs. Now, its researchers are working on a chip that constantly monitors the animal's temperature to warn of disease.
