The farmers who supply the fresh milk used to make Hood dairy products are required to adopt humane animal care as a core value. These dairy farms must certify they are compliant with National Dairy Farmers Assuring Responsible Management Animal Welfare (FARM AW) program. This International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recognized program addresses animal care practices, on-farm evaluations, and works to ensure the integrity of the program through third-party verifications. The animal care program focuses on active enforcement, providing training and educational resources, and continuous improvement. Hood encourages and supports the dairy industry’s efforts to promote and enforce animal well-being.
