Consumer interest in how you care for your animals has never been higher. Make sure your library contains the most recent industry standards from the Dairy Quality Assurance Center so you and your employees are following the latest animal care recommendations.

The 2002 version of the DQA Caring for Dairy Animals Technical Reference Guide and On-The-Dairy Self-Evaluation Guide is now available for $25, plus shipping and handling. To order your copy, go to the Web site at: www.dqacenter.org or call (800) 533-2479.

Two respected professional food organizations — the Food Marketing Institute and the National Council of Chain Restaurants — have recommended that their members reference materials from the DQA’s dairy animal care guidelines when they respond to consumer questions.
