This is totally outrageous and I see the familiar footprints of the Animal Rights folks all over it. They will continue to attack us on many fronts and use government agencies to do their dirty work for them. The farmers in Michigan need to rise up and demand that this overstepping of power by DNR be stopped at once!
With husband, Bill, we raise:
Mid and Mini Jersey cows and Wagyu cattle
Babson/*Turfa desert bred Arabian sport horses and breeding stock
Large Black pigs
12 cats in charge of everything
I Border Terrier who serves at the Cat's pleasure
