AABP Conference | Preparing Your Clients for a On-Farm Animal Care Assessment

The National Dairy Farmers Assurance Responsible Management (FARM) Program and the National Beef Quality Assurance will provide insight on (1) the role of bovine practitioners in dairy and beef animal care on-farm evaluations and assessments and (2) how to assist clients in preparation for successful evaluation and assessments. The FARM Program works with dairy farmers, the producer community and industry partners to show customers and consumers that the dairy industry is taking the very best care of cows and the environment, producing safe, wholesome milk and adhering to the highest standards of workforce development. Currently, 98% of the United States milk supply participates in the FARM Animal Care. The BQA Feedyard Assessment is an on-site educational tool that allows for assessing and benchmarking key indicators of animal care and well-being as well as feedyard conditions. The Feedyard Assessment focuses on three main areas – Animals, Records, Protocols and Facilities and Equipment.
