Sustainable Farming Magazine

AGW’s Sustainable Farming magazine is the world’s leading magazine for sustainable livestock production.

Published four times a year, each issue covers a wide range of topics including technical advice, animal husbandry and market developments, as well as thought-provoking articles and opinions.

Farmers and ranchers in any of AGW’s certification programs receive complimentary copies of the magazine in the mail. But anyone can subscribe to receive a free online copy every quarter – sign up here.

Sustainable Farming magazine incorporates the former AWA Newsletter.
