How to get OUT of NAIS

  • Did you register your property with NAIS before you knew what it really was and you've changed your mind?
  • Have you been registered without your permission?
  • To remove information on you and your property from the NAIS database, click here and follow the outlined steps.

New Flyer for distribution

  • The House Committee on Agriculture has included a section in the Farm Bill that pose a threat to our rights, and our food supply. The proposed language would link the National Animal ID System (NAIS) to Country of Origin Labeling (COOL). This is BAD for both farmers and consumers!
  • Flyer includes talking points, sample letter or email, and contact information for members of the House Committee on Agriculture
  • Spread the word - to print out the Flyer just download the pdf*

    Contact Information for your Elected Officials

    • Tips before using this powerful tool
      • When you enter your zip code, contact information for your Senators and Representative will be displayed, along with a link to your state and local officials (above the photos). Under the photo of each official, you may choose "email" or the "info" link. The "email" link is an automatic email form into which you may enter your message, either directly, or "cut and paste." There are also other options.
      • The "info" link provides the official's direct email address, as well as information about his/her district office. These options are likely to be more effective than the form option described above.
      • Do NOT snail-mail a printed letter to Washington. Screening delays delivery for weeks. If you choose to send a printed letter, please send it to the district office. The district office does register and report every contact, and should not be overlooked.

    • Letters and phone calls
      • Letters and phone calls will be most effective if you follow a few basic principles. Your contact should be brief and to the point. Your opening sentence should identify the issue, with a bill number if appropriate, and state your position in support, or opposition.(longest)
      • Follow the opening sentence with two or three strong reasons that support your position. Ask your representative to support (or oppose) the issue. End your contact with your name and address. If your letter is longer than one page, it's too long and will not likely be read.

    • Here are some sample letters on NAIS. Please feel free to use them when writing to your legislators. Cut and paste the letters on your own letterhead, or mix and match the parts you think best expresses your concerns.
      • Sample letter #1 (shortest)
      • Sample letter #2 (longer)
      • Sample letter #3 (longest)
