Measure 3 — the “right to farm” constitutional amendment measure — was ahead with 68 percent of the vote, but with only 17 of 426 precincts counted. The measure was spearheaded over an entire year by the North Dakota Farm Bureau.
Anyone who tells you that Measure 3 will give farmers and ranchers license to pollute or be negligent doesn’t understand how seriously farmers and ranchers take their jobs. I’m a farmer, and I have gone to great lengths to make sure the practices I use are the best for the land and for the animals I raise.

Modern does not mean “safe,” “efficient,” “economical” or even “good.” It simply means new: “contemporary,” “not antiquated or obsolete” or “of or pertaining to recent time.”
There are many things that are considered “modern” that science has proven to be inferior to the “antiquated” model. Formula feeding vs. breast feeding infants is one.
When one reads “Right to Farm” on the ballot, one might think “of course” and vote yes; but it has nothing to do with crop farmers.
Measure 3 has been concocted by the North Dakota Farm Bureau primarily to protect animal agriculture.

The experts from universities including Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, the University of Virginia and Notre Dame, recently wrote that most states and the federal government provide greater protection for religious freedom claims than does North Dakota.
