Hearing on Farm Animal Issues Spencer, MA/Lunch at Loving Hut Afterwards

The Agricultural Committee is having a public hearing in Spencer, Mass. about the Livestock Board Bill, H. 753, which would create a politically unaccountable board that has the power to veto farm animal welfare regulations issued by the state--the board could threaten all farmed animal protection measures.

Please join us with VegWorcester, Compassion Over Killing, the Humane Society, and many other animal organizations on June 3rd to speak out against this bill. 

You do not need to say anything to register your opposition to the bill. Whether or not you would like to testify, your presence is enough to send a strong message. 
 

Afterwards, join Bruce Friedrich (Farm Sanctuary), Alexis Fox (HSUS), Matt Dominguez (HSUS) and other advocates for lunch and a conversation about farm animal protection immediately following the hearing. Lunch will be at Loving Hut in Worcester.
Find out more and RSVP.
INFO ABOUT THE BILL: 





A Farm Bureau poll found that 95% of Americans believe farm animals deserve humane treatment. Now, the Farm Bureau wants to cut the public out when creating farm animal welfare standards. H. 753 would create a politically unaccountable board that can veto farm animal welfare regulations issued by the state. They don’t want the people to have a voice. What are they so afraid of? They are afraid the people will protect farm animals from cruelty! Let’s make sure they don’t stop us. Come to the hearing to say NO to this power grab!
