Attorney outlines some Prop 12 misconceptions


California’s Proposition 12 is in full effect and an ag law expert says pork producers need to be clear on the rules.

Eldon McAfee is an attorney with Brick Gentry Law Firm representing the Iowa Pork Producers Association. He tells Brownfield Prop 12 applies to whole-pork meat.

“Ground pork is not subject to it,” he said. “Anything processed is also not subject, so there is pork that can go into California without being subject to Prop 12.”

Proposition 12 bans the sale of pork, veal, and eggs in California from animals anywhere in the country whose confinement does not meet minimum space requirements.
