RESPONSIBLE ANIMAL CARE

BOLD SUBHEAD TO GO HERE

Land O’Lakes’ member-owners have maintained a lifelong commitment to humane and responsible animal care practices. Cows that are treated well contribute to higher milk production, bringing more milk to market with less environmental impact.
Animal care is increasingly becoming a supplier requirement for customers, especially large international customers.

National Dairy FARM

(Farmers Assuring Responsible Management) Program
