This year, as you know, we are celebrating 20 years of American Humane CertiﬁedTM. At the turn of the century, we decided to begin working to independently verify the outstanding welfare practices of farms and ranches. A decade ago, I joined American Humane, and I couldn’t be more proud of the consistent growth and excellent work that everyone involved has put in to improving the lives of farm animals.
No one expected 2020 to take the turns it has but, as in all things, our nation’s farmers have tackled the challenges head on. As the nation, and the world, adapts to the new normal, grocery store shelves are still laden with aﬀordable, safe and delicious food.
American Humane has been involved in the agricultural space since our founding in 1877, 144 years ago, and we are looking forward to another 144 years of elevating the standards for animals on farms.
If you are a farmer who is part of our program, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for continuing to do right by the animals in your care. Thank you for your commitment to excellence in these trying times. Thank you for going above and beyond and for encouraging others to do the same.
Looking forward, we are excited to continue working alongside scientists, animal experts and farmers to raise the standards of farm animal welfare for another 20 years.
If you are a farmer who already does amazing work with animals and are interested in communicating that to your customers, reach out. Our farm team is available to answer any and all questions that you have.
All my best,
Robin R. Ganzert, Ph.D.
President and CEO
