Oregon Battery Cage Ballot

HSUS and Oregonians for Humane Farms have filed a ballot measure to ban battery cages in Oregon.

Battery cages for egg-laying hens in Oregon could be a thing of the past if a new ballot measure introduced in the state legislature is signed into law. Introduced by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and Oregonians for Humane Farms (OHF), the measure, which would go on the November 2012 ballot, calls for the outlaw of battery cages and the sale of eggs from battery-caged hens. According to OHF, approximately 2.5 million egg-laying hens in Oregon live their entire lives in cages smaller than a sheet of paper.
