Food Safety Starts on the Farm Back »

Farmers are entrusted with the care of the animals that produce our food before it gets to our plates. Whether food is purchased in a grocery store, a farmers market, or directly from a farmer, the animals that produce the food have been provided the best possible care and handling throughout their lives to ensure the food supply is safe. As relevant topics are written discussing on-farm management practices that impact the safety of our food supply, the select iGrow articles will be updated. Feel free to contact an Extension Food Safety, Meat, or Livestock Specialist for more information or to discuss a topic you are curious about that is not found in these articles. At the bottom of this article you can find links to the iGrow Livestock Communities that provide additional information about the care of animals on farms and resources covering management practices and marketing of livestock.
