HB 104 (Cow-Share Program Amendments)
Libertas Institute supports this bill.
In 2007, the Utah legislature banned cow shares, whereby multiple people may jointly own a cow and share its milk. This bill seeks to repeal that prohibition.
Libertas Institute supports this bill. Property rights do not exist only when a person completely owns something; joint ownership of property is common, and each person retains their right to use their portion of that property just as they would if they owned all of it. As such, the cow share prohibition violates property rights and should be repealed.
