One hundred percent of 4Life’s dairy farms are now certified by Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (FARM) or Validus, programs that hold farms to the highest standards for treating animals with dignity and complying with best sanitary and safety practices. The company is also a part of the National Dairy FARM program and the United Egg Producers (UEP), initiatives that ensure humane treatment for both chickens and cows.
The company stated that this accomplishment was the result of several years of hard work and collaboration.
“We are proud of our history with the dairy farmers who collect our colostrum,” said Dr. David Vollmer, 4Life Chief Scientific Officer. “That relationship, first and foremost, recognizes animal well-being. In terms of 4Life Transfer Factor® manufacturing, 4Life uses the remaining colostrum after the calves have consumed their portion to jumpstart their naïve immune systems. Our partnerships with FARM and UEP-certified facilities underscores the importance we place on sustainability.”
