Certify Proper Animal Care and Farm Practices
The Verified Premium Plus (VPP) audit process is conducted by a DQC approved, licensed veterinarian. Along with the dairy manager they identify and guide continuous improvements based on science, effective management practices, and employee training.
VPP-certified herds are scored by licensed veterinarians trained in the VPP standards. The veterinarians have the training, skill and passion for the dairy animal and their background and animal health training, in-service education, and code of ethics make them experts.
The VPP program utilizes the expertise of more than 100 veterinarians to certify management practices on more than 145 dairy farms across the country. As the VPP program grows, more veterinarians are needed to complete verifications.
