Certified Humane

Create a more humane world for farm animals

The Humane Farm Animal Care Standards have been developed to provide the only approved standards for the rearing, handling, transport and slaughter of Chickens for use in the Certified Humane® program. These standards incorporate scientific research, veterinary advice, and the practical experience of farmers. The standards are based on the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) guidelines, current scientific information and other practical standards and guidelines recognized for the proper care of animals.

 

Animal welfare is improved when livestock managers adhere to the following:
* Access to wholesome and nutritious feed
* Appropriate environmental design
* Caring and responsible planning and management
* Skilled, knowledgeable, and conscientious animal care
* Considerate handling, transport, and slaughter
