Ohio to outlaw all forms of pig production with new standards?
According to this article http://www.ellinghuysen.com/news/articles/112268.shtml
Ohio is going to require weaned pigs to have heat and bedding. Our weaned pigs don't have heat but most weaned piglets don't have bedding. Ohio played a dangerous game and it may come back to bite their whole industry. If people in the US have specific standards they want their meat producing animals raised under they should buy them from a specific supplier. That is why we are called America and a capitalistic free market society.

That is why we are called America and a capitalistic free market society - Not really. What is happening now will eventually happen all over the world. These do gooders want cheap meat and think by marking the industry for welfare misdemeanours is the way to do it.
I am not sure the word America represents anything about the free market. I don't know of any country that does but you could be the first. As for the free market under which you operate, this change is part of it. Standing on your dig and getting your hump up will not get congress to change the opinions of these ratbags. In this country the government fell into line over sow stalls and they will be banned by 2017. That, here. is the beginning and it will happen there too.
