National Program Ensures Great Care for Dairy Cows

How hard do farmers really work to keep cows happy? More than 90% of America’s milk comes from dairy farms that have voluntarily joined the National Dairy FARM Program.

FARM stands for Farmers Assuring Responsible Management. It’s a nationwide program that sets high standards for cow care and milk production based on the latest research, using second and third-party verification to confirm farmers and processors are meeting those standards – so consumers know their dairy comes from well cared for animals.

The dairy community has an excellent track record of responsible management practices; this national effort simply brings consistency and uniformity to on-farm care.

FARM was created by National Milk Producers Federation with support from Dairy Management Inc. Learn more at or on FARM’s InstagramTwitter or Facebook pages.
