Prop 12: Farm Animals Confinement Standards
Establishes New Standards for Confinement of Specified Farm Animals; Bans Sale of Noncomplying Products. Initiative Statute.
A ‘yes’ vote supports this initiative to:
- Establish minimum space requirements based on square feet for calves raised for veal, breeding pigs, and egg-laying hens and ban the sale of (a) veal from calves, (b) pork from breeding pigs, and (c) eggs from hens when the animals are confined to areas below minimum square-feet requirements.
A no vote opposes this initiative, thus:
- Keeping in place minimum space requirements based on animal movement-not square feet-for calves raised for veal, breeding pigs, and egg-laying hens and continuing to ban the sale of shelled eggs from hens-but not liquid eggs from hens, veal from calves, or pork from breeding pigs-that are confined to areas not meeting space requirements based on animal movement standards.
