View from the rural-dwelling Vermonter surrounded by farms...

Somehow I expect this'll be one of those laws that is widely ignored at the local level. I just can't see Grandma or the local dairy farm paying much attention to this regulation, and I can't see a lot of local clerk's offices or co-ops expending a whole lot of effort enforcing it --probably nothing more than a dutifully-filed monthly report to USDA saying "Yeah, everyone around here's in compliance, thanks for asking."

Besides, how will it look when a bunch of black-armored psychotic FedGoons storm Grandma's cottage for failure to file paperwork on her hen? How on earth can even the most obstinate state-worshipper possibly give that a positive spin for the six o'clock news?

You underestimate how seriously the USDA folks at the local extension offices take their jobs. At least around here.

:-(

I intend to refuse. Let them come haul me off so I can make a big statement in the media about this. I think most people are completely unaware of this legislation. Of course, I may find that most of them simply don't care.

They could sell it as one of those crazy gun-toting separatist standoffs like those that were in vogue in the 90's.
