Our U. S. Secretary of Agriculture, Mike Johanns, was on the program early today here at the Cattle Industry Convention. He spoke for about 25 minutes before taking some questions from the floor.
One of the things he focused on was an animal ID system. He said that he’s put about $100 million dollars into the budget for the development of a national system. He said the budget will be available to look at by next Monday when President Bush announces his proposed budget.
I recorded his comments for you. The audio feed for the press was a little “hot” but it’s very clear. You can listen here: Mike Johanns Speech (25 min. MP3 File)
