DAVENPORT, IA (May 15, 2013) — Protect the Harvest, a pro-agriculture and sportsmen advocacy group, applauds the passage of Missouri HJRs 11 & 7, the proposed state constitutional Right to Farm amendment.

“In 2012, North Dakota became the first state to pass similar protections for farmers and ranchers,” said Protect the Harvest Board member Erik Helland. “And yesterday, Missouri joined them and took a major step toward providing the state’s number one industry - agriculture - protection from radical animal rights groups, like HSUS [the Humane Society of the United States].”

HJRs 11 & 7, sponsored by State Representatives Jason Smith (R-Salem), Bill Reiboldt (R-Neosho) and State Senator Mike Parson (R-Bolivar), passed with strong bipartisan support in the Missouri House of Representatives, by a vote of 132 Yes to 25 No, and the Missouri State Senate, by a vote of 28 Yes to 6 No.

The amendment affirms the right of farmers and ranchers to engage in modern farming and ranching practices. It will now go before Missouri voters during the 2014 election cycle.

“This constitutional amendment will protect all food customers, not just farmers and ranchers,” said Protect the Harvest’s Executive Director, Brian Klippenstein. “Right to Farm will ensure customer choice and improved access to a wide variety of nutritious, healthy, and affordable foods necessary to meet the pressing needs of a growing world population.”
