USDA IMPLEMENTS KEY STRATEGY FROM NATIONAL ANIMAL IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM BUSINESS PLAN
WASHINGTON, April 15, 2008--The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) today announced that it has implemented a key strategy from its Business Plan to Advance Animal Disease Traceability by providing National Animal Identification System (NAIS) compliant "840" radio frequency (RF) eartags to animal health officials for use in the bovine tuberculosis (TB) control program.
The first snake of the season was caught yesterday.
My husband did the cultivating in our field and the good neighbors.
But because of the 49mph winds, he got something in his eye and it scratched up his lens and inner/upper eye lid. He was not feeling to well. The neighbor across the way is a nurse. So I called her and my husband went over there for her to look at it. She had some antibiotics and an eye patch. Did him up right, and he feels a lot better today.
Because of the winds it was hard to get too much done, so that short, but tiresome list I gave you yesterday was not fully completed. But I did promise pictures.
This is my real quickly banny box.
Here are the Colombians. (yes Columbine was a sleepy typo)
