Just as well they don't bother to build the barns because some folks wouldn't be able to afford the increase in prices evcen though conventional cages have provided society with billions of low cost eggs and hens do not know the difference.

Ohio compromise may have claimed its first victim
By Rod Smith
August 23, 2010

The animal care compromise between agriculture interests in Ohio and
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) apparently has claimed
its first victim: a planned egg farm in western Ohio that would have
been a conventional cage housing system.

In an e-mail from Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland's office last week,
Feedstuffs was advised that Hi-Q Egg Products is not "a currently
permitted facility" and that if and when it becomes fully permitted,
the agreement's rules will be in place that ban building new
conventional cage housing.

The company, therefore, would not qualify to be grandfathered in under
the agreement's terms, the governor's office said.

Hi-Q ownership did not respond to a request for comment in time for this story.

Hi-Q is planned as a 15-barn, 6 million-hen complex on a 437-acre site
near West Mansfield, Ohio, in Union County that would be the largest
egg farm in the state
. However, its permitting has been stalled by
county commissioners who have not signed off on a permit for the
company to build a road connecting a highway to the farm.

Commissioners have also hesitated over their concerns about the farm's
impact on the environment.

The Ohio compromise was reached earlier this year (Feedstuffs, July
5), and, among other things, it bans the state from issuing permits
for new conventional cage housing but grandfathers in existing cage
operations and lets owners expand, modernize and pass on to relatives
those existing operations.

It also has provisions for sow and veal calf housing that ban
individual stalls for those animals on a phase-out time table.

For its part, HSUS agreed not to carry a petition to the Ohio ballot
this fall that, if adopted by voters, would have imposed much stricter
requirements for housing hens and livestock.

Strickland recently told Feedstuffs that the agreement lets Ohio
agriculture go forward
with more predictability and stability
(Feedstuffs, Aug. 16).

Going forward while blocking the ability to raise animals as farmers found to be best methodology.

More info to show just how wrong folks are if they think the end of all animal farming isn't behind costly emotionally driven H$U$b type attacks against animal products is. Hope I don't appear to ignorant , stupid and distortive i am in using their own words to prove my point!!!

2010 World Farm Animals Day Theme
Holding Animal Agribusiness Accountable

In addition to promoting a vegan lifestyle, a primary goal of World
Farm Animals Day is to expose the inherent cruelties of animal
This year, we are imploring activists to take this
element a step further by drawing attention to animal agribusinessís
corruption, unethical marketing practices, and questionable government

Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM) will be engaging in media blitzes
to reveal to public the ways that animal agribusiness manipulates the
government, institutions, and a well-meaning public in order to sell
more of their cruel products
. Activists can take advantage of the
national attention in order to locally support the local strategy.

Coming shortly, we will post a list of addresses of the offices of
animal agricultural business associations and headquarters. Activists
should stage spirited, media-worthy protests outside of these offices.
Read our tips on staging a demonstration.

Also on its way is a new section within the website that will inform
the public about animal agribusinessís violations of the well-being of
animals, humans, and the earth. Check back frequently as we post more
information on how to integrate this yearís theme into your
