Clover Sonoma was the first dairy in America to step forward and become certified for the humane treatment of its cows under the American Humane Certified seal. Thanks to producers like Clover Sonoma, nearly one billion animals are now covered under the American Humane Certified program, the nation’s first independent, third-party farm animal welfare effort. To become certified, farmers and ranchers must agree to implement more than 200 rigorous, science-based standards covering everything from adequate space to proper heating, lighting, air quality, and much more. In addition, their facilities are inspected annually by independent professional auditors to ensure the standards are being followed. We thank these forward-looking companies for their commitment to animal welfare.
To show our support for producers who go the extra mile to treat their animals well, we ask that you please join us and vote for Clover Sonoma to win an award from Dairy Magazine – and inspire other dairies to get on board with the public’s growing desire for humane certification of America’s farms and ranches. We can all agree that working to ensure good conditions and treatment for the nation’s 10 billion farm animals is the right thing to do.
