Webinar National Dairy FARM Program 4.0 Webinar
December 13, 2019 | 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. ET

The National Dairy FARM Animal Care Program underscores the dairy community’s commitment to continually improving animal care and incorporating the latest animal-welfare research, demonstrating to consumers that dairy is a leader in the humane and ethical care of our animals. The National Milk Producers Federation, with support from Dairy Management Inc., has updated animal care standards under the National Dairy Farmers Assuring Responsible Management, or FARM, Animal Care program after a rigorous 16-month stakeholder review. FARM Animal Care is updated once every three years to ensure relevance to current industry best management practices and scientific research related to on-farm animal care. IDFA Members can join this webinar to learn from NMPF about how the fourth iteration of the FARM Animal Care Program’s standards supports closer farmer-veterinarian relationships, requires continuing education for all employees and adds a new standard for pain management when disbudding animals, among other updates.
