Massachusetts Conditions for Farm Animals Initiative

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Massachusetts Conditions for Farm Animals Initiative was Question 3 on the November 8, 2016 statewide ballot.[1] The measure will phase out what advocates say are "extreme" methods of farm animal confinement.[2]

Eleven other states already had rules regulating confinement conditions for certain farm animals and regulating the sale of products from such animals kept in "extreme confinement".[3]

The measure was approved by voters by a vote of 78% yes to 22% no;[4][5] it will take full effect on January 1, 2022.[6]

Ballot Question 3 is complicated. It's about the containment of farm animals. So, that's calves raised for veal, breeding pigs used for pork and egg laying hens. A yes would phase out cages that confine them to such a point that they can't expand their wings or stand up and turn around, which isn't a huge issue in Massachusetts because there's actually only one farm in the entire state that uses these kind of confinement practices that the ballot measure is trying to put an end to. But a yes would also ban products that come from animals that have been contained, which is basically how factory farms produce animal products throughout the country. So that means we would not be able to sell those products here in Massachusetts, which is actually raising a lot of questions about pricing and how this will affect consumers. A no on question three would basically mean things will remain the same here in Massachusetts, not only on the farms but also in the grocery stores.
