On Tuesday, the USDA announced that it had terminated its Animal Husbandry Program.
The program was set up in 2010 to help the U.S. farm industry adapt to climate change.
The USDA says it is ending its program because the cost to produce and test new breeds of animals and to provide training to animal husbandriers is too high.
The agency says that, by not testing and certifying the animals, it has had to rely on imported, cheaper and more expensive breeds to keep up with the demand.
The Department of Agriculture is not the only government agency facing a budget crisis.
The National Institutes of Health is also in the process of winding down its Animal Care and Use Program, which pays researchers to study animal welfare and the effects of technology on humans.
But the USDA program was designed to help producers who can’t find the resources to produce the animals they need, not just farmers who can.
The animals that can be imported are mostly small, feral dogs and cats, according to the USDA.
The programs funding was cut in 2017 and 2018, but it is still in place.
The cuts come at a time when the Trump administration is looking to cut funding for research and animal welfare, and to boost farm subsidies.
The Agriculture Department says the programs are “essential to advancing the public interest and advancing research and veterinary care for domestic animals.”
According to the agency, the cost of breeding, training and testing new animals has increased by more than $1.2 billion since the program was created.
“As a result, many of the nation’s top veterinary professionals have concluded that the program is unsustainable, is a financial burden, and is not effective in improving animal welfare,” the USDA said in a statement.
