AGRIBUSINESS: Oklahoma Gov. Signs Horse Slaughter Bill

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin signed a bill on Friday allowing horse slaughter in Oklahoma. However, the bill prohibits selling the meat for human consumption in the state.

Governor Fallin backed her decision by claiming the 2006 ban on horse processing plants has made inhumane slaughter profitable in other countries by removing humane slaughter practices in the United States from the horse meat market.
