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

This action is for New Jersey residents only.

Great news: The bill banning the use of gestation crates and veal crates in New Jersey passed out of the Assembly Judiciary Committee last week! The Senate Judiciary Committee passed the companion bill out of committee in February — which means we are halfway to passing this long-overdue bill.

We now need your help to get the bills posted for a floor vote!

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.
