Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm signed a bill on Monday that extends “modest yet meaningful” protections to farm animals.
The bill is a result of negotiations between animal welfare and agricultural groups. The law states that animals must have specified room to stand up, turn around and walk. They must be able to extend all limbs.
Michigan is the seventh state to sign and enforce such laws. Animal rights are a heated debate across the country now with states like Ohio planning to vote on the issue in November.
