The Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board has banned the use of veal crates in the state, reversing a vote that occurred on March 1. The earlier vote approved the use of veal crates, reversing a vote in November 2010 that banned confinement for calves. After approximately 4,700 public comments were received, the majority of which asked for a repeal, the board once again banned veal-calf crates. Veal calves confined to crates often spend more than half of their lives restricted to an area so small they are unable to turn around.
