The Ohio House signed off on legislation establishing the Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board, the next step in the process following voter approval of the issue in November.

Substitute House Bill 414 passed on a vote of 98-0 and heads to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.

The legislation would set membership of the board to include 10 individuals from specified groups appointed by the governor, the director of the Ohio Department of Agriculture, and single members appointed by the Speaker of the Ohio House and Senate President.
The new board would have to meet at least three times each year and would establish standards for livestock care that would cover hogs, cows, sheep, goats, poultry and llamas. The Ohio Department of Agriculture would administer the process and investigate complaints of livestock mistreatment. Farmers who violate the rules would face civil penalties.
