New Jersey Assembly Bill 1971 would make confining a pregnant pig in a way that does not allow her to turn around, lie down, stand up, or fully confine her legs a disorderly persons offense, punishable by $250-$1000 in fines and up to six months imprisonment, or both. The legislation includes many exemptions, including the use of farrowing crates, use during medical research, use during transportation, use during exhibition (including 4-H), confinement for “no more than eight hours in any 24-hour period,” and “proper care of the gestating sow during the 10-day period prior to the expected date of the gestating sow giving birth.”
