Currently, we are developing 5-Step standards for other animals, as well as preparing updates to original standards. Read more about our process.
As a multi-stakeholder organization, we’re committed to working in partnership with individuals from every sector who are concerned about the welfare of farm animals. We invite you to submit your comments on draft standards as they become available. Your opinion is valuable and important to us.
