Oregon Stall Ban Defeated

Activists in Oregon seeking to make it illegal to use gestation stalls or tethers that prevent pigs from turning around, lost their battle to add a ballot initiative in the November election. Activists needed 66,786 signatures by July 2, but fell short of achieving that mark, says Tim Breeding, president of the Oregon Pork Producers Association.
