In all seriousness, that is a very valid point and an important issue and it IS used. Problems do commonly occur with follow-up, person moves to another state, etc, but like most legislation, the real solution is better enforcement, not more legislation.
I don't agree though, that there is any type of perceived slope to "they're coming to take them away." Details of management, reporting, etc for agriculture may change, but no, no one will come take all the animals away. If they do, you are welcome to come to my house and punch me in the face and tell me I was wrong. I am more than willing to take that risk.
