Since its inception in 2009, Land O’Lakes, Inc. has worked with member-owners and industry organizations to develop and support the National Milk Producers Federation’s National Dairy FARM (Farmers Assuring Responsible Management) program. FARM is an internationally recognized program that provides consistency and best practices in responsible animal care and quality assurance across the dairy industry.
The National Dairy FARM Program is the first livestock animal care program in the world to be recognized in compliance with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Animal Welfare Management/General Requirements and Guidance for Organizations in the Food Supply Chain.
Today, participation in the FARM program is a mandatory condition of Land O’Lakes, Inc. dairy membership. 100 percent of our members are FARM verified and more than 98 percent of the U.S. milk supply comes from dairy farms participating in the FARM program.
Land O’Lakes is committed to making sure our producers have all the necessary information to meet the specific requirements of the program. See the link below for more tools and resources.
