Grassfed. Cage Free. Free Roaming. It all sounds wonderful, but how do you know the animals you consume were treated fairly, humanely, and in a way that doesn't poison our bodies or the environment? The Global Animal Partnership has created a 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating System to do just that. This program offers transparency and the ability for animal industries to showcase the ways in which they excel. With the many, many horrid animal production facilities in this industry, it is wonderful to know that there really are ranchers, farmers and producers that care about animal and environmental welfare.
