Landmark Farm Animal Welfare Decision in New Jersey!

Congratulations to Kathy Meyer, Amy Trakinski and Len Egert for a terrific decision handed down by the New Jersey Supreme Court Thursday!

In a 78-page decision, the court ruled, among other things, that the N.J. Ag Dept's definition of "routine husbandry practices" was arbitrary and capricious. It banned tail docking altogether and held that other practices, such as de-beaking or castration, could only be performed if the agency better defined other terms, such as "minimize pain".
