U.S. dairy farmers dedicated to healthy cows and wholesome milk

2021 Drug Residue Manual

The Milk and Dairy Beef Drug Residue Prevention Reference Manual provides a quick resource to review drugs approved for dairy animals and can also be used as an educational tool and resource for farm managers and employees to develop on-farm best management practices.

FARM and You

Through our four program silos, FARM works with dairy producers, cooperatives, processors and industry partners to demonstrate the highest standards on U.S. dairy farms.

Introducing FARM Animal Care Version 4

The FARM Animal Care Program standards are revised every three years to reflect the most current science and best management practices within the dairy industry. The current standards, rationale, and accountability measures have been reviewed and revised by the FARM Technical Writing Group and National Milk Producers Federation Animal Health and Well-Being Committee and approved by the National Milk Producers Federation Animal Health and Well-being Committee and National Milk Producers Board of Directors. These standards will be in place from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2022.
