California, Vote YES on PROP 2!

Vote Yes on Prop 2 !On November 4th, Californians NEED TO vote YES! on Prop 2!  Prop 2 is an extremely modest measure that stops cruel and inhumane treatment of animals.  Prop 2 will end the practice of cramming farm animals into cages so small the animals can’t even turn around, lie down or extend their limbs.  Prop 2 prevents cruelty to animals. It is just wrong to confine veal calves, breeding pigs, and egg-laying hens in itsy bitsy cages barely larger than their bodies.  Baby calves are roped by the neck and can’t  move, pigs in severe confinement end up biting the metal bars of their crates, and poor helpless hens get trapped and even impaled in their wire cages. The A.S.P.C.A would freak out if we forced our pets to live in filthy, cramped cages for their whole lives, why in the world would we force farm animals to endure such misery. All animals, including those raised for food, deserve humane treatment.   Factory farms put your health at risk by cramming thousand upon thousands of animals into tiny cages, fostering the spread of diseases that may and has affected people. YES! on Prop 2 is better for animals, for you and your family.

    i wish people wouldn’t attack animal agriculture this way. if i were me 3 years ago, i would’ve had the same reaction and supported prop 2.

    however, as a college student majoring in animal science/pre-vet, i saw and met many farmers who are not as “evil” as some animal rights groups make them. everyone has to make a living. farmers choose to make their living not because of the money (they hardly make anything and have to take on a second job. hollywood stereotypes of “farming as a person’s sole job” is a complete stereotype. they’re not true). rather, farmers enjoy being outdoors, they enjoy working with animals. why would you even make a living as a farmer when you aim to hurt animals? just as why would you become a social worker if you hate people? that doesn’t make sense.

    there are people who do hurt animals and they deserve to be punished more than ever. however, please don’t attack the animal agriculture industry. and please please please just try to look at the other side of the argument- aka people who are against prop 2. see what they have to say. even if it pains you more than ever, just try.

    it’s better to get the entire picture and make your decision then instead of just basing your opinions on a one-sided argument.

    from what you can gather in my schpeel, i am against prop 2. though i like the animal welfare aspect, it’s just not practical. i know, it’s a lame excuse. that’s where compromising comes in…

    •If it passes, egg supply will go down and egg prices will go up.
    •Some egg farmers in California who already practice cage-free chicken farming are fearful that the ballot language is ambiguous (capable of being understood in more than ne way) and that their farming would also be subject to the provisions of the initiative.
    •If chickens are not in cages, they are more vulnerable to attacks by predators, including other chickens;
    •Veal crates and gestation crates for pigs are practically non-existent in California or are being voluntarily phased out this year.
    •The initiative doesn’t require farmers to keep chickens outdoors. Battery cages have been banned in Europe effective 2012. Farmers making the transition there are not providing free range conditions for their chickens but are instead finding other ways to keep chickens in barns.
    •If egg companies don’t want to deal with the new regulations, they can move to other states or Mexico, taking their benefits to local economies with them.
    •According to a study put out by the University of California-Davis, if Prop 2 passes, it is likely that it would force the state’s $300 million egg industry to move out of the state or out of business entirely.
    •The cost of producing eggs would increase by 20% or more.
    •The egg business would have to invest about $500 million on new ways to house chickens.
    •Consumers would buy trucked-in eggs from other states and Mexico which would be more exposed to salmonella, and the hens more vulnerable to bird flu.
    •According to the National Taxpayers Union, Proposition 2 would place additional regulations on how livestock owners must handle their farm animals, which could increase food costs.
    •Los Angeles pundit George Skelton says, “I’m for chicken compassion. But I feel more compassionate about the chicken farmer in this bankrupting economy.”
    •Increases the risk of bird-flu
    •Increases the risk of food-borne illness like, SALMONELLA
    •cost thousands of Californian jobs and puts family farmers out of bussiness
    •cost California 615 million dollars for JUST this economic activity
    •harms the environment by contributing to global warming

    VOTE NO on Proposition 2 because it HURTS California families.
    Thousands of jobs will be lost and egg prices could skyrocket for California consumers.
    A UC Davis study says Proposition 2 will eliminate California-produced safe, fresh, affordable eggs. We’ll end up buying eggs trucked in from thousands of miles away, including Mexico.
    VOTE NO on Proposition 2 because it ENDANGERS both food safety and animal welfare.
    Leading food safety, veterinary, and public health experts oppose Proposition 2. They know modern housing systems for egg-laying hens are safe, sound, and humane for the hens, and they protect human health.
    These modern systems are designed for proper care and treatment, providing ample space, food, water, light, and sanitation, allowing hens to stand, stretch, turn around, and lie down. Hens are protected from migratory birds and wild animals (which can carry BIRD FLU), and from living in–and laying eggs in–their own waste, which can contain Salmonella bacteria.
    By effectively banning modern housing, Prop. 2 actually harms egg-laying hens, undermines animal welfare, endangers food safety, and risks public health.
    VOTE NO on Proposition 2 because it’s RISKY.
    Proponents say this measure is “moderate,” but it’s really EXTREME, ignoring science-based food safety and animal welfare guidelines while endangering the health of California families.
    Proponents say the measure deals with animal treatment, but they don’t tell you California law has long required humane treatment of animals, and still does
