Ohio livestock farmers are proud to be active contributors to the safest food supply in the world. Livestock farmers know that providing safe, affordable food for everyone is a daily responsibility. To meet that obligation, livestock farmers employ the best farming practices to help enhance the efficiency of their farms and keep their products affordable and readily available to consumers.
All livestock farmers understand that food safety is a top priority. From biosecurity of their facilities to expert veterinary care of flocks and herds, maintaining the highest standards for food safety is synonymous with the high-quality eggs, wholesome dairy products and fresh meat and poultry that they produce.
Ohio's livestock farmers follow industry-specific quality assurance programs and other voluntary initiatives to enhance food safety measures. They also work to continuously raise the standards for how food is produced, processed and transported.
