The American Grassfed Association (AGA) certification identifies food and agriculture products which meet the standards as set forth in the AGA Grassfed Ruminant Standards and certified through a program approved by the AGA. The logos and design marks may only by used by those who have an approved signed license agreement with the American Grassfed Association.
Grassfed products are defined as those food products from animals that have eaten nothing but their mother’s milk and fresh grass or grass-type hay from birth to harvest – all their lives. The logo determines that animals were fed a lifetime diet of 100% forage; were raised on pasture, not in confinement; and were never treated with hormones or antibiotics. The most common products are beef, bison, lamb, goat, pork, poultry, eggs and dairy (milk, butter and cheese).
Standards are verified by an independent, third-party, on-farm audit by 'Animal Welfare Approved'.
