As many of you know, Proposition 12 went into effect January 1, 2022, which requires minimum housing standards for breeding pigs, veal calves and egg-laying chickens that are sold or processed in California. For the purposes of AgFest, this affects market hogs that will be sold at auction. For AgFest 2023, self-certification from the farm where the breeding pig was kept was acceptable. However, for AgFest 2024, 3rd party certification of the farm where your market hog was bred will be required.
Please read the attached letter from the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) explaining the requirements for 2024. The letter provides a link to a video that provides information and guidance to fair exhibitors on Proposition 12. Any further questions can be addressed to email@example.com
