Please join us this coming Tuesday as we discuss Humane Farm Animal Welfare with special guest Tim Amlaw. Tim is Vice President of American Humane Certified, the leading and original farm animal welfare program in the United States. American Humane Certified can be found on twitter under its brand @humanetouch. Mike Haley (@FarmerHaley) will be moderating on the #AgChat account.
American Humane Certified is a voluntary, fee-based service available to producers of animals in agriculture. The program provides independent, third party audited verification that the care and handling of animals on enrolled farms meet the animal welfare standards set forth by American Humane Certified. Producers who meet the standards may use the American Humane Certified label on their products.
American Humane Certified has been paving the way in farm animal welfare by working with farmers by establishing standards to follow and verifying them by providing third party audits. In addition, they have worked with several food companies to increase the demand for products sold under their brand allowing certified farmers to receive a premium for their products.
To place a question in the cue, please send a DM to the AgChat account. Mike will be organizing questions on Monday for the convo.
