GENERAL
This letter is in response to your request for comments on the ANPR proposed changes to the existing feed ban. I am against all of the proposed changes, except the feeding of chicken litter to livestock. This is one area that should have been stopped years ago. If there was ever an area for cross contamination and the spreading of disease it would be through this pratice. Your proposal to remove all SRMS from both live and dead cattle is a total waste of time and a very expensive proposition. You must reconsider this proposal and allow public hearings before proceeding with this plan.
Sincerely, Marvin Huyser
