They’re gonna hear us out! 🧾

swine o'clock Oct 13, 2022

This week, the US Supreme Court is set to hear the arguments of the swine industry against the constitutionality of Proposition 12 – a Californian law that bans the sale of pork from animals whose confinement fails to meet minimum space requirements. 


  • Since Prop 12 has been creating quite a fuss, we’ve talked about it before. Check out more details here!


The National Pork Producers Council and the American Farm Bureau Federation argue that:


  • The cage size used by producers DOES provide the animals with adequate welfare conditions. 


  • Prop 12 violates the Constitution, for it interferes with other states’ commerce and impacts productions outside of California. 


  • The law will have a negative impact on producers, because many of them cannot afford the changes.
