Good animal well-being is critical for all involved: the animals, the workers, the farm, even the families that drink milk at home. This module covers the importance, expectations, and method for animal well-being on your dairy.

There is also a course available that combines the Animal Well-Being Module with a Cow Care Agreement that can be signed digitally.
