Validus Animal Welfare Review

Animal Welfare Review CertificationMore than ever before, consumers want reassurance that the meat and dairy products they consume are produced on farms where animals are humanely raised.

Validus Animal Welfare Review Certification is awarded to farms that follow stringent animal welfare guidelines. Farms that receive animal welfare certification undergo a detailed assessment and audit of their on-farm animal welfare practices. Certification is awarded to farms which demonstrate compliance with the animal welfare criteria and standards established for their operation, including:

  • Humane animal handling and management
  • Herd health procedures and care
  • Food and water quality standards
  • Housing that promotes animal comfort and cleanliness
  • On-farm security procedures
  • Proper management of special needs animals
