Midwest Farmers Calling Out CA Lawmakers Over Pig Protections



YouTube @ CNBC Television

Midwest farmers and lawmakers don’t want California to be in charge of how they raise their livestock.  A California law requires breeding pigs be confined to a pen with no less than 24 square feet of floor space, allowing them to fully turn around in their living area. 

Congress is considering a new version of a farm bill that includes a provision that would allow the Golden State to apply its law to California pig farmers but not to farmers in states like Kansas and Missouri. 

Lawmakers say California doesn’t need to tell others states how to take care of their livestock.
