Farm Animal Welfare Fight Heats Up in Ohio
OCTOBER 31, 2009
Issue 2 in Ohio would create 13-member state board to oversee the care of farm animals in the State. The Humane Society and other groups oppose it as a power grab by big agriculture to prevent another Proposition 2 (the initiative passed last year in California to improve standards for farm animal care.) If it passes, it will encourage other states' ag industries to go on the offensive to protect their "raw materials.".
