Stand Up To Factory Farms

We are a coalition of local, state and national organizations concerned about the harmful impacts of mega-dairies on Oregon’s family farms, communities, environment and animal welfare. The solution to Oregon’s mega-dairy crisis is a moratorium on new mega-dairy permits and the expansion of existing mega-dairies until policies are in place that ensure the humane treatment of animals, the economic viability of family farmers, and that meaningfully protect our air, water, wildlife, and climate.
