Historic Measure Passed

The Michigan legislature approves farm animal welfare measure, now at Governor’s desk.

Yesterday, the Michigan House of Representatives voted to pass landmark animal welfare legislation, after numerous negotiations between animal-rights groups and the state's agriculture industry. Once signed by Governor Jennifer Granholm, the law will require egg-laying hens, breeding pigs, and veal calves be able to stand up, lie down, turn around, and extend their limbs, instead of being confined in cages that permit limited movement. The bill passed with a landslide vote of 36-0 in the Senate last month. Animal-rights groups across the country are praising Michigan for becoming the fifth state to ban veal crates and the second state to ban battery cages.
