At G.A.P., we want farmers to succeed. Our standards may be tough, but our goal is to drive continuous improvement in animal welfare. To help reach that goal, we work to support the farmers and ranchers who are seeking G.A.P. animal welfare certification.

That’s why G.A.P. has developed tools to help producers. G.A.P.’s record templates and smart sheets make it easier to keep required records of daily events and occurrences. There are even short how-to videos to explain how to use the advanced features of our Excel spreadsheets. View the full list of resources below. (If you’re looking for templates in another language please let us know.)
