Dairy Animal Care

The foundation of the LEADS dairy animal care requirements is the national Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (FARM™) Animal Care (AC) program. FARM AC is a nationwide, verifiable dairy animal well-being program developed in partnership with veterinarians, dairy farmers and university researchers. Through education, on-farm evaluations and objective, third-party verification, dairy farmers continually improve all areas of dairy animal care. We conduct dairy farm evaluations against the most current FARM AC version 4.0.


Dairy Farm Environmental Sustainability

The national Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (FARM™) Environmental Stewardship (ES) program is also part of LEADS. This program uses an online assessment tool to help farmers evaluate their environmental progress relating to energy and greenhouse gas emissions. Dairy farms with supply agreements also participate in FARM ES version 2.0.
