Assuring Responsible Dairy Management Through Expert Evaluations and Guidance
Consumers today are more interested than ever before in their food: how it’s produced, its safety and wholesomeness, who is producing it and how animals are treated. The National Dairy FARM Program: Farmers Assuring Responsible Management is earning the trust of everyone who makes dairy a part of their day by setting the highest standards when it comes to animal care, workplace settings, and environmental and antibiotic stewardship. Open to all farms, milk processors and cooperatives, FARM helps ensure the success of the entire industry by demonstrating to our customers and consumers that U.S. dairy farmers are committed to producing the best milk with integrity.
National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) with support from Dairy Management, Inc., established the FARM Program in 2009. Through the Innovation Center for US Dairy, the dairy community has aligned behind FARM as the industry-wide social responsibility program.
The FARM Animal Care Program demonstrates that dairy producers are committed to taking excellent care of their animals and producing safe, wholesome milk by:
- Detailing science-based animal care guidelines that evolve with the latest dairy research
- Providing on-farm evaluations by trained evaluators who work with farmers to identify strengths and, if necessary, outline improvements
- Ensuring the integrity of the program with third-party verification by qualified dairy experts who evaluate a representative percentage of farms each year to demonstrate that FARM is working as intended
