Here is what our farm inspector has to say:
"The state requires 6-month inspections; however, Schneider's Dairy inspects their farms at a maximum of 5 months. As a farm inspector for Schneider's Dairy, I visit our partner farms every other month. During these visits, I look at the equipment, the health of the animals, the calves, bedding, and the general animal welfare. If I question anything, I will work with the farmer to rectify any situation.
When Schneider's Dairy became a certified member of the National Dairy FARM Program in 2016, it was very easy for our farmers to fit into this program because our farms function as a store selling a food product. Our first priority is, and always will be, the welfare and care of the animals."
