The Idaho dairy industry has recently began to observe a new law put in place that illegalizes undercover filming and recording of agricultural operations. This law comes in time to work to end animal activists secretly filming with the intent of stopping animal abuse, and allowing more self-monitoring on the part of dairy farmers. In addition to self-monitoring, the Idaho State Department of Agriculture continues to routinely perform on-site inspections of farms. Many dairy farmers are taking action to support this law by installing cameras monitoring workers, and requiring employees to sign waivers ensuring to treat animals humanely. Read here for more of the story, including reactions from both dairy farmers, and animal activists about this law.
