Late last week, the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) joined the American Humane Association in discussing a shared commitment that farmers are making to proper animal care.
A top chef and others involved in food production also participated in the discussion which was meant to “celebrate and give thanks to those working to build a better world for people and animals,” said AHA President and CEO Robin Ganzert.
Since 2008, NMPF has led the development of Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (FARM), an community-wide dairy animal care program. NMPF recently improved the reach of the FARM program by requiring all farms that supply companies participating in the program be enrolled and participate in evaluations of their practices.
