How Does Animal Welfare Affect Sustainability?

Well cared for animals is a priority for farmers and ranchers. It not only ensures the safety and health of animals but it also maintains a sustainable farm and best business management practices.

Farmers and ranchers are making great strides to ensure their practices are not only the best for their animals’ well-being, but that they are also contributing to a food supply that is as safe and healthy as possible. This means basing practices on peer-reviewed studies as well as implementing generations of practical experience. Additionally, partnerships with veterinarians and nutritionists are critical and a key part of animal care on America’s farms and ranches.
