Support New Jersey Gestation Crate Ban!

  • By: Chris Wolverton
  • Target: New Jersey State Assembly and Natural Resource Committee

Nine U.S. States and major companies such as Safeway, Burger King, Hardee's, Wendy's and Mc Donald's have committed to ending the use of sow gestation crates. Gestation crates, also called sow stalls, confine pigs for most of their lives in individual cages barely larger than their bodies. Sows are unable to turn around, stretch their limbs or take even one step forward or backward when confined in these crates. An undercover video by the Humane Society illustrates the misery endured by pigs in these crates.

The New Jersey State Assembly and Natural Resource Committee is considering Bill S.1921/A.3250 which, if passed, would phase out sow gestation crates statewide. A recent poll by Mason-Dixon Polling and Research shows that 91% of New Jersey voters already support the bill.

There is no reason for these highly intelligent, curious and social animals to spend years confined in these crates. Please sign the petition to support a ban on gestation crates in New Jersey.

To: New Jersey State Assembly and Natural Resource Committee


We, the undersigned, are writing in support of Bill S.1921/A.3250 which, if passed, would phase out sow gestation crates in the state of New Jersey.


Nine U.S. States and major companies such as Safeway, Burger King, Hardee's, Wendy's and Mc Donald's have already committed to ending the use of sow gestation crates. As you know, gestation crates, also called sow stalls, confine pigs for most of their lives in individual cages barely larger than their bodies. Sows are unable to turn around, stretch their limbs or take even one step forward or backward when confined in these crates. An undercover video by the Humane Society illustrates the misery endured by pigs in these crates.


A recent poll by Mason-Dixon Polling and Research shows that 91% of New Jersey voters already support the bill. We believe that there is no reason for these highly intelligent, curious and social animals to spend years confined in these crates. We hope that you will make New Jersey the tenth state to ban gestation crates. Thank you for taking the time to read and consider our petition.
