Dairy Quality Center

How do producers demonstrate responsible animal care?

Response:

Consumers want to know the truth--dairy producers have to provide dairy animals with the utmost care in order for the cows to provide an abundant supply of wholesome milk and dairy beef.

Producers provide consistent care to insure healthy cows including:

  • Food and water
  • Clean areas to rest
  • Shelter from the sun and environment
  • Healthcare when needed
  • Biosecurity programs to prevent diseases

The Dairy Quality Center assists producers uphold and document animal well being standards used on their dairies. A Certified Professional Consultant (veterinarian) verifies for the DQ Center that a producer is providing responsible care.
