Did you know that feedlots for beef cattle are prohibited in order to achieve a G.A.P. Certification level greater than Step 2 (Enriched Environment)? Even at the base certification level and at Step 2, cattle must be kept in pasture and can only be placed in a feedlot for finishing. We also have minimum vegetation requirements for pasture, and weaning age minimums for calves at all levels.
We're proud to say that more than 3/4 of our G.A.P. Animal Welfare Certified beef partners meet the requirements for Step 4 (Pasture Raised) or higher. We are proud to work with so many ranchers who care about their cattle and their land.

Did you know that G.A.P. Certification requires ALL farms (yes, every single farm - not just a sample) to be audited every 15 months? Why 15 months, you ask? Good question. G.A.P. independent third-party Certifiers visit farms every 15 months so that they are able to see the animals through different seasons and different life stages. The first audit may have been in the fall, for example, but the next one will take place in the winter. G.A.P. has specific requirements for animal care through hot summers and frigid winters. We also have requirements for young animals, adults and also gestating (pregnant) animals. Another reason why you can trust the G.A.P. Animal Welfare Certified label and feel good supporting G.A.P. Certified farmers and brands who are raising animals the right way.

Did you know that G.A.P. has requirements in our standards for Livestock Guardian Dogs (LGDs)? Guardian dogs are raised on many of our G.A.P. Certified farms to protect the farm animals from predators. Usually, guardian dogs protect animals like sheep that are easier prey due to their smaller size. Especially with sheep that are grazed extensively – meaning the sheep are given access to large areas of grazing land – guardian dogs patrol the perimeter of the pasture on a regular basis, especially at night, when predators are more active. This helps deter predators without having to set up really long fence lines (not practical for large grazing areas) or set traps (leg traps, snares, etc. are prohibited by G.A.P.’s standards).
Check out this article highlighting High Country Lamb and the way they use their guardian dogs to protect their sheep. 💗 https://globalanimalpartnership.org/about/news/post/dogs-a-farmers-best-friend/ (link in bio)

Did you know? Chickens certified to G.A.P.'s Step 2 / Enriched Environment animal welfare standards must be raised in houses with windows so that the chickens have plenty of natural light. They must also be given at least two different types of enrichments like hay bales or perches, and, of course, have enough space to move around per G.A.P.'s space requirements for Step 2 indoor systems.
G.A.P. is also working to determine new protocols defining slower-growing breeds as part of our animal welfare requirements through the Better Chicken Project. Why should you care about broiler chicken welfare? Check out our blog post here: https://globalanimalpartnership.org/about/news/post/why-should-you-care-about-broiler-chicken-welfare/. (link in bio)
