Food Armor® HACCP for Proper Drug Use requires veterinarians and producer teams to work seamlessly to create a Food Armor® HACCP plan that is customized to the farm’s management and employee’s skills and needs.
Food Armor® is the only program of its kind to layout the “how” veterinarians and producers can work together to obtain the goal of food safety and stands to redefine drug use in the dairy industry. To date, the Food Armor® Foundation is the only individual and/or group that has provided the industry with an on-farm action plan.
The process of developing an on-farm HACCP plan for proper drug use helps producers and veterinarians address animal welfare by identifying and stopping treatment of the incurable, which essentially reduces pain and suffering of the animal, while increasing food safety. Participating in Food Armor® moves you closer to ensuring food safety and appropriate medication use on dairy farms.
