For the umbrella organization AgriGenève, the federal initiative which wants to ban intensive farming is useless and will put it on the straw of many farms.
The 2,000 one-week-old chicks pecking in their hall in Troinex find themselves in spite of themselves at the heart of a political debate. It is in the poultry farm of the Bidaux family that the Geneva agricultural circles have decided to launch their campaign against the federal initiative which wants to ban intensive farming, on which the people will vote on September 25th.
For the umbrella organization AgriGenève, this initiative is useless. “One after the vote on pesticides, we find ourselves again with an attempt to dismantle Swiss agriculture,” says François Erard, director of AgriGenève. Why useless? “Because in Switzerland our agriculture remains family-based, argues the president of the association, Marc Favre. There is no mass breeding and even less intensive. In addition, we have some of the strictest animal welfare standards in the world.”
