Senator Schwank Introduces Bill to Allow Hemp Grain as Yummy & Nutritious Food


The Pennsylvania Hemp Industry Council (PAHIC) is proud to announce State Senator Judy Schwank’s introduction of SB407, a bill that would allow hemp grain to be used as an ingredient and animal feed for pets, specialty pets, horses, and other non-production animals.

This is a significant step forward for the hemp industry in Pennsylvania, as it will provide farmers with a new market for their crops and allow them to diversify their income streams. It will also benefit pet owners and animal lovers who want to provide their animals with high-quality, nutritious food.

Hemp grain is a rich source of protein, fiber, and healthy fats. It is also a sustainable crop that requires minimal water and fertilizer to grow. By allowing hemp grain to be used as animal feed, we can reduce our reliance on traditional feed sources like corn and soy, which are often heavily processed and may contain harmful additives.

Furthermore, this bill aligns with the growing trend of consumers seeking more natural and organic products for their pets. By providing pet owners with an alternative to traditional pet food, we can help them make informed decisions about what they feed their furry friends.

We urge all Pennsylvania residents to contact their state senators and ask them to support SB407. By doing so, we can help support our local farmers, promote sustainability, and provide our pets with the best possible nutrition.

 PAHIC is proud to support State Senator Judy Schwank’s SB407 and looks forward to the positive impact it will have on our state’s economy and the well-being of our pets.
