Ladonnah Cardin raises Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World (AGW) beef cattle at Elmwood Farms in Gould City, Michigan.
The Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW certification and food label lets consumers know these animals are raised outdoors on pasture or range in accordance with the highest animal welfare standards in the U.S. and Canada, using sustainable agriculture methods on an independent farm. Consumer Reports has rated Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW as the only “highly meaningful” label for farm animal welfare, outdoor access and sustainability—and the only animal welfare certification in which they have confidence.
In addition to being Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW, the cattle herd at Elmwood Farms is Certified Grassfed by AGW, the first—and only—food label in the U.S. and Canada that guarantees food products come from animals fed a 100% grass and forage diet, and raised entirely outdoors on pasture or range.
