CATTLEMEN FOR ANIMAL CARE

WHAT WOULD INITIATIVE 13 DO?

BAN ON LIVESTOCK PRODUCTION

The measure would put an end to livestock production and processing in Oregon, risking the livlihoods of over 13,000 ranchers and end Oregon’s second-most valuable agricultural commodity, at $652 million.

CRIMINALIZE VETERINARIANS, TEACHERS, PET AND LIVESTOCK OWNERS

Farmers, ranchers, veterinarians, teachers, and ag advisors who use accepted animal care practices would be guilty of criminal animal cruelty.

ERASE OREGON’S WESTERN HERITAGE

Rodeos, county fairs, livestock shows, horse shows, trail rides, and any activity that involves the participation of animals would be threatened by new animal cruelty standards that can’t be met.

INITIATIVE 13 WOULD IMPACT EVERYONE

THREATEN ANIMAL HEALTH

The measure would criminalize veterinary care practices and safety protocols for the reproductive health and safety of livestock.

MAKE LIVESTOCK PRODUCTION UNSUSTAINABLE

Forcing farmers and ranchers to feed animals over an extended lifespan would increase expense without profit shutting down cattle operations across the state.

REDUCE CONSUMER CHOICE AND INCREASE FOOD COSTS

This measure would drive up the cost of food production and ban entire industry sectors in Oregon. This will increase grocery store prices, reduce consumer food choices, and eliminate locally raised beef.
