Canadian Farmers’ Union Chapter Backs Gestation Crate Ban

HSUS Farm Animal Protection Director Paul Shapiro just emailed:

The Manitoba chapter of Canada’s National Farmers Union (note: Manitoba is the big pork production province up there) just issued a resolution calling on pork producers to stop using gestation crates.

This is significant news, since the province of Manitoba is Canada’s largest pork producer. I’ve no doubt this news establishes precedent that will help Paul push for similar measures in the United States. Link.
