Farm Animal Protection Act Initiative

The Humane Society of the U.S. (HSUS) has initiated a California ballot initiative that seeks to “prohibit the confinement of farm animals in a manner that does not allow them to turn around freely, lie down, stand up, and fully extend their limbs,” with some exceptions.

The Farm Animal Protection Act would ban battery cages, gestation crates, and crates for calves used for veal, effective 2015 and would likely cause production costs to increase, which consumers might be willing to pay.

Animal advocates have until October 1, 2007 to gather 433,000 signatures in order to put the initiative before the citizens for a vote.
