Josh Lloyd raises Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World (AGW), Certified Grassfed by AGW beef cattle and sheep on pasture at Josh Lloyd Farm, in Clay Center, Kansas.
Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW is the only label in the U.S. that requires audited, high-welfare slaughter practices and pasture access for all animals. The program operates on the simple understanding that the way ranchers like Josh raise their animals, the nutritional quality of the meat they produce, and the impact of ranching systems on the environment, are all intrinsically linked. Healthy, content animals produce better tasting, healthier meat, and pasture-based livestock operations like Josh Lloyd Farm have been shown to have a positive impact on the environment.
Having a year-round supply of quality grass and forage is particularly important for the beef cattle and sheep at Josh Lloyd Farm, both of which are Certified Grassfed by AGW, the only certification and logo in the U.S. and Canada that guarantees food products come from animals fed a 100 percent grass and forage diet, raised outdoors on pasture or range for their entire lives, and managed according to the Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW leading welfare and environmental standards on an independent farm.
The Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW and Certified Grassfed by AGW logos verify that Josh Lloyd Farm’s meats come from animals raised according to the highest welfare standards, outdoors on pasture and range.
