“Responding to the point that "Agribusiness giants from the Midwest, the South, and across the country have declared California to be ground zero. . . ."
Humane California farmers and consumers should not be dictated to by giant agribusiness!
We want Calif. Prop 2 passed in November (see yesonprop2.com) both to end the inhumane treatment of "food animals" and to KEEP THE CALIF. FARM ECONOMY STRONG. The farming future is about ethical, food-safe, non-cruel food-animal farming. This is what it'll take for the Calif. farm economy to retain its competitive strength.
Our 'YES on Prop 2' position supports the interests of Calif. farmers using humane processes in farming cattle, veal calves, pigs, chickens, and eggs. We're an important demographic: WE REPRESENT TODAY'S HUMANE FOOD-ANIMAL CONSUMERS! We're omnivorous "humane eaters" in a multi-pet & human household. Like many people and pets around the U.S. and the rest of the world, we consume only cage-free eggs and only humanely raised & slaughtered animals.
Hey, thousands like us were already voting humanely with our forks before giant agribusiness made California a battleground!
Please join us in saying NO to giant agribusiness and YES on Prop 2 to promote the growth of the humane food-animal and cage-free egg economy.”
