Farm Animal Anti-Confinement Legislation
Millions of pigs, calves and chickens are forced to spend their lives confined in spaces so small they can't even turn around. Gestation crates, veal crates, and battery cages prevent animals from performing natural behaviors, thus causing injuries and significant physical and psychological stress.
A growing number of states are introducing legislation to prohibit intensive confinement crates for calves raised for veal and gestating sows. In 2013, anti-confinement bills were considered in six states—Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York and Vermont.
