New York Bill Would Prohibit Intensive Confinement Practices for Pregnant Sows and Calves Raised for Veal

New York Assembly Bill 473 would prohibit any person from tethering or confining any pig during pregnancy or calf raised for veal for all or the majority of any day in a manner that prevents such animal from lying down, standing up and fully extending its limbs, and turning around freely. The bill has been referred to the Assembly Committee on Agriculture.
