LEGISLATION
An unwieldy
PROPOSITION
Time's almost up for the pork industry
to comply with Proposition 12
BY ERICA SHAFFER | eshaf fer@sos land.com
T
he pork industry is not giving up the fight
against Proposition 12, California's animal
confinement law. But with a deadline
roughly three months away, time is running out
for pork producers to comply with the law while
others fear it's already too late.
Beginning in 2022, sows will need a minimum
of 24 square feet of usable space per animal
in addition to other requirements related
to confinement. Pork not produced under
these standards cannot be sold in California.
For a majority of producers, complying with
Proposition 12 means reducing production or
investing millions in facility upgrades to meet
space and turn-around requirements of the law.
Producers have no guarantee they will recoup
the costs of adding space to their operations.
Michael Formica, general counsel, National
16 MEAT+POULTRY | 09.21 | www.meatpoultry.com
Pork Producers Council (NPPC), said, " They're
being offered $4 extra or $8 extra a sow, but if
your costs are $20 extra a sow, that doesn't get
you anywhere. "
Adding to the uncertainty is the fact that
lawmakers in California are behind in rulemaking
for the law. California was supposed to have final
regulations in September 2019, he continued.
Currently, the state has proposed regulations,
and the comment period on those proposed
regulations closed in July. But Formica said his
understanding is that the comment period will
be re-opened because lawmakers need to have a
public hearing.
" So, California was supposed to have their
rules out, and this is part of the problem too, "
Formica said. " ...you're not going to go make
a $13 to $15 million investment when you have
