We are a coalition of local, state and national organizations concerned about the ongoing expansion of factory farming and its harmful impacts to Oregon’s climate, family farms, communities, air & water, and animal welfare.
We need a time out on Factory Farms: that’s why we are fighting for a Factory Farm Moratorium in the 2023 legislative session. The solution to Oregon’s factory farm crisis is a moratorium on all new and expanding large factory farm permits until policies are in place that ensure the humane treatment of animals, the economic viability of family farmers, and that meaningfully protect our air, water, wildlife, and climate.
Factory Farm Moratorium Bill HEARING SET!
Senate Bill 85-1 would prohibit Department of Environmental Quality and State Department of Agriculture from issuing or renewing license or permit to allow construction or operation of new industrial confined animal feeding operation, addition to or expansion of existing industrial confined animal feeding operation or addition to or expansion of livestock farm that would cause livestock farm to become industrial confined animal feeding operation.
