Laws


1. Every producer of meat products must by law ensure that their livestock:

  A. Has lived at least 1 year in maturity.

  B. Has been able to live and forage in an area of land that is of their habitat with ample room for running and grazing and exploration.

  C. Has not been fed antibiotics unless sick.

  D. Has never been confined in a feeding apparatus.

  E. Has never been confined to a small area for more than 12 hours unless necessary because of weather conditions.

  F. Has had other animals of its kind to associate with.

  G. Has lived in a healthy environment.

  (Note this will obviously raise costs. The higher costs will be passed to the consumer. Non-meat products will become more common and cost-effective as a choice. Those with metabolisms that require meat diets will be given extra food cash assistance.)

2. It is unlawful to chop down forests or disturb existing eco-systems (that are necessary for a healthy eco-system and environment) for the purposes of creating grazing land and/or land for food livestock.

3. Monocultural agricultural practices that are destructive to a landís soil and that require inorganic pesticides are illegal.
