Business and Farmer Resources

Farms and businesses that are listening to today’s consumers know that farm animal welfare goes beyond ethics—it’s part of a sustainable business model. Small farmers, large producers, independent businesses and large corporations all play a part in building a more humane, more accountable food system, and stand to benefit from doing so. Using in-house knowledge of animal welfare science and certification standards, the ASPCA is helping farmers and companies adopt strong and transparent animal welfare policies and practices.
