Chances are, you have heard very little about Ohio Issue 2, the proposed constitutional amendment that would create an oversight board for the livestock industry. It's coming from an unlikely place--members of the livestock industry itself. Advocates appear to be trying to pre-emptively self-regulate the industry before anything like California's Proposition 2--The Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act--can be introduced in the Buckeye State. Tuesday morning at 9, we'll find out why farmers are seeking more government oversight, and why the Humane Society of the United States opposes them.

Guests

Jack Fisher, executive vice president, Ohio Farm Bureau Federation
Paul Shapiro, director of the factory farming campaign, Humane Society of the United States
Mike Gerber, president, Gerber Poultry
Candace Croney, Assoc. Prof of animal behavior and bioethics, Ohio State University
