Farmers lost in two state votes

Farmers lost on two questions put to voters in different states as part of the presidential election Tuesday.

In Oklahoma, voters rejected a call for “right-to-farm” legislation that was backed by the Oklahoma Farm Bureau and Oklahoma Pork Council and a number of other farm organizations.

In Massachusetts, voters approved a proposal to ban caging hens, sows and veal calves and to ban the sale of products raised under those confined housing systems.
