Hinson says many farmers are against Prop 12


U.S. Congresswoman Ashley Hinson says many pork producers have expressed disappointment with California’s Proposition 12 law.

“Farmers have told me that regulations like Prop 12 will continue to drive consolidation and provide fewer options to source and market their pigs.”

The Iowa Republican tells Brownfield, “I’ve also heard from a farmer that the transition to the housing would cost one family farm between $3-$4 million,” she said. “I’m willing to bet that the radical activists who are pushing this agenda have never stepped foot on a farm in their lives and have no idea that food doesn’t just come from a grocery store.”

Hinson says Prop 12 could lead to an increase in food prices for consumers.
