Joanne- thanks for bringing this IMPORTANT message to the list.<br>
As the originator of NH HB1110 the 8 week bill which is now NH law, I
can tell you the<b> USDA NEEDS to implement these guidelines</b>.&nbsp;
The laws will not be able to be adequately enforced without a
standard. AS it site the mills can now change the paperwork to list
any speculative date of birth and store personnel have little clue as
to what stage of development the ferret kits are supposed to be.<br>
WITH THIS IN PLACE- it will make it better for the ferret kits-
ensuring canine distemper vaccine will have greater efficacy and that
there will be less heath problems like prolapsed rectums etc from the
food conversions.<br>
I offer the AFA&nbsp; all the support I can give in assisting with
accomplishing this very important task.<br>
I urge everyone to - when the time comes plan to write your
