GRASS-FED CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
The Grass Fed Certified Program guarantees grass fed and free grazing farming practices on farms that supply milk to Conaprole, assuring that 80% or more of the milk supplied comes from a certified farm. Certified by LSQA (Quality Austria + LATU)
The diet of milking cows is made up of 85% or more of pasture, and the foods available in the dairy are exclusively of plant origin.
NO USE OF HORMONES OR ANTIBIOTICS AS GROWTH PROMOTERS
The use of hormones and antibiotics is reserved only for those cases endorsed by current regulations and under the supervision of a veterinarian, being prohibited its use as growth promoters
The production chain has 100% of the establishments in an animal traceability plan, georeferencing of each farm and traceability for all the milk collected and transported to plants.
Animal welfare is one of our main priorities in the process of producing milk. The cows can free graze every day of the year, guaranteeing the availability of water and feed, as well as the spaces and times required for adequate social interaction in the herd.
FAMILY ON FARMS
Milk production promotes the settlement of families on rural areas. Therefore, at Conaprole we provide support to all of our farmers to steadily enhance their income and quality of life.
The certification is carried out through a group audit scheme, where each dairy farm adheres individually. During the audits, aspects related to the identification of the establishment, pasture feeding, the absence of use of hormones and antibiotics as growth promoters, the traceability of livestock, animal welfare and the social dimension are assessed In turn, corporate processes related to ensuring the chain of custody of the product and the absence of antibiotics in milk are audited.
