Maine Bans Gestation Crates

Maine Governor John Baldacci has signed legislation prohibiting the use of gestation crates for sows and veal crates for calves beginning January 1, 2011. The Humane Society of the United States strongly backed the legislation.

California voters passed similar legislation in 2008 that goes into effect in 2015. Four other states have also passed similar animal confinement laws.
