It is a foregone conclusion about the additional paperwork for the producer. A rancher probably doesn't mind tagging the animals prior to sale as many already do that. But, when they get to be sold, I will guarantee that the government will screw up any procedures and it will take years to straighten things out that make the tagging worthwhile. There needs to be stringent review of the traceability rules they implement, or a lot of innocent people will be accused if disease should break out. Average steer in the US has "eight owners during it's lifetime" - poppycock !
Somebody is smoking something strange or the water is bad. Also, "if there is a need to trace a particular tag------animal health officials will contact the owner---"-he was tagged by the owner at that time. Don't you normally trace things in reverse from where the problem occurred? What about the other 7 owners? My, oh my. So the original tagger is responsible for what happened to that steer?? Good argument to just let the stockyards tag it! Speaking as a rancher, after it gets off of your trailer, you have absolutely NO control over what happens to that animal. Sale barns will be really bogged down with paperwork and auctions will slow to a crawl.
