Name: Restriction on Confinement of Animals for Food Producing Purposes
Bill Number: A 1341
Confinement farming is a method of raising food animals
using the least amount of space for the greatest profit. The most common
application is through the use of gestation crates for pigs, veal crates for
calves and battery cages for egg laying hens. In addition to causing suffering for
animals who cannot turn around, stretch or move their bodies outside a very
small space, this type of farming also leads to disease in both animals and
A 1341 would prohibit the confinement of veal calves and
sows, as well as the confinement of hens in battery cages.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from National Anti-Vivisection Society.
Support an end to cruel confinement farming treatment of animals raised for food
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing to ask you to support A 1341, which would end the use of gestation crates for pregnant sows, veal crates for calves and battery cages for egg laying hens. These three means of confining animals raised for the production of food are particularly horrific because they result in animals spending their entire lives in confinement from which they cannot escape. They cannot stand, turn around or stretch their limbs or wings. As a result, they are sentenced to a life confined in a cage too small to offer even a brief respite from their suffering. Please let New York give animals used for food production some relief from a lifetime of inhumane confinement.Thank you for your consideration.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
