A coalition of animal protection organizations, veterinarians, and family farmers have come together in California to attempt to place a measure on the November 2018 ballot that would ban the sale of animal products in the state that were produced using intensive confinement. If the measure is brought to the ballot and passed, it would mean that hens who produce eggs sold in California would have one square foot of space (at least). And the sale of pig and cow flesh from animals who were kept in gestation or veal crates would be prohibited.
CreatureKind was proud to be the first Christian organization to endorse this important effort.
Of course, animal welfare reform can't stop at the cage door. Even optimal welfare farming has its shortfalls.
But it seems clear to us that there's no room for battery cages, gestation crates, and veal crates in the good stewardship of God's creation.
