FARM Animal Care evaluators are certified individuals who conduct second-party evaluations on behalf of FARM Animal Care participants. Certified individuals can be full-time, part-time or contractors through FARM Animal Care Program participants. Evaluators work alongside dairy producers to identify strengths and outline areas for improvement related to animal care.
FARM Animal Care Evaluator Trainers are individuals who are certified to not only complete second-party evaluations, but administer training for second-party evaluators.
To be qualified to complete evaluator or trainer training, trainees must meet the prerequisites detailed below in addition to completing and passing certification on an annual basis.
Please note: FARM does not employ evaluators. Individuals wishing to becoming certified evaluators should first secure employment or a contract with a FARM program participant.
