Animal care standards bill advances in Kentucky

March 29, 2010 by Ken Anderson, Brownfield Ag News

A bill to create a Livestock Care Standards Commission in Kentucky has been passed by the Kentucky House and could soon be headed to the governor for his signature.

The legislation—which is backed by Kentucky Farm Bureau—is designed to limit groups such as the Humane Society of the United States from trying to get tougher livestock care rules implemented in the state. If approved, the new commission could recommend on-farm animal care regulations to an existing state agriculture board, which could adopt them.
