The Kentucky Livestock Care Standards Commission canceled its Thursday meeting, the Kentucky Department of Agriculture announced. On Wednesday, the Humane Society of the United States sent a letter to Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer and to state veterinarian Robert Stout, stating that the commission had failed to hold open meetings, according to the Kentucky.com Daily Business Report.
The news came about an hour and a half before the meeting was scheduled to begin. The HSUS complaint filed Wednesday asked that the commission halt action until it complied with open-meetings requirements. The commission was planning to review preliminary versions of potential rules for how farm animals must be treated in Kentucky.
No new date has been set.
