United States, Department of Agriculture, and Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service
We published a document entitled "Animal Welfare: Definition of Terms and Regulations' in the Federal Register on May 12, 1987, extending by 30 days the public comment period for two proposed rules. So that we may consider comments received after the comment period closed on July 1, 1987, we are extending and reopening the comment period from July I, 1987, until 15 days after publication of this notice. This action will also enable other interested persons to submit comments for our consideration.
