New Jersey: End the Cruel Confinement of Mother Pigs and Calves Used for Veal

This action is for New Jersey residents only.

Please help end the intensive confinement of mother pigs and calves used for veal in New Jersey by supporting S.3401/A.5236. Urge Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin to help ensure this bill becomes law by allowing A.5236 to be posted in the May 12th Assembly Judiciary Committee. 

Learn more: A bill banning the use of gestation crates and veal crates in New Jersey is pending in the state legislature. Gestation crates virtually immobilize mother pigs for nearly their entire lives. The crates are so small mother pigs can’t even turn around or take more than a step forward or backward. Because of this lack of movement, they suffer muscle and bone deterioration that often leads to debilitating injuries. Veal crates are similarly cruel. Within days or even hours of birth, calves raised for veal are taken away from their mothers and locked in these crates, which are so tiny the animals can barely move.
