New Jersey Residents:
Take Action to Help Mother Pigs and Baby Cows

The New Jersey state legislature is currently considering legislation to ban certain cruel forms of confinement in the pork and veal industries. The bill (S3401/A5236) would ban cruel gestation and veal crates in the state and allow mother pigs and baby cows enough space to turn around freely, lie down, stand up and fully extend their limbs. These most basic welfare requirements are currently not required by state law. By taking action below, you can help change that.

Act today to help end the unnecessary and cruel confinement of mother pigs and calves!


Despite state anti-cruelty laws, mother pigs and baby calves in the pork and veal industries are confined for nearly their entire lives in spaces so small they cannot even turn around. That is why we need specific legislation like S.3401 / A.5236 to make these horrible practices illegal in New Jersey once and for all.
