Massachusetts is now the fifth state to outlaw or phase out battery cages, the ninth state to outlaw veal crates, and the tenth state to outlaw gestation crates. It is now also the second state, after California, to ban not just the production but also the sale of products made using these cruel confinement systems. Soon the roughly 6.75 million hens raised each year to provide Massachusetts with eggs will get a significant upgrade in their living conditions.

Animal lovers everywhere rejoice! Our yearlong ballot campaigns — to enact the nation’s most comprehensive farmed animal protection law in Massachusetts and to defeat a nefarious law pushed by factory farmers in Oklahoma — just paid off in a big way!
