Oregonians for Humane Farms is a coalition of veterinarians and animal welfare, family farming, food safety, and environmental groups working to improve the lives of egg-laying hens.
Oregonians for Humane Farms (OHF) is a coalition of veterinarians and animal welfare, family farming, food safety, and environmental groups working to improve the lives of egg-laying hens.
In 2011, thanks to countless volunteers, OHF gathered nearly 2,000 signatures to satisfy the first legal requirement and start gathering signatures to place the Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act on the November 2012 Oregon ballot. However, in light of a promising new agreement reached between animal welfare groups and the United Egg Producers to jointly push for federal legislation to improve the welfare of all 280 million laying hens in the nation, OHF is officially suspending its signature gathering campaign and is hopeful that this national agreement will obviate the need for an Oregon ballot measure.
Oregonians for Humane Farms is now dedicated to passing a federal bill that would improve the lives of the hundreds of millions of laying hens all across the country. Please email us if you would like to help in that effort.
