What is "A Greener World" (AGW)?
When we say “happy cows make the healthiest milk”, we mean it.
The Best Unflavored Grassfed Whey of 2020 Fun Fact -
A Greener World is the assurance body that certifies our farms as “Animal-Welfare Approved”. Their ISO/IEC Guide 17065 accreditation guarantees independence and impartiality, in fact, AGW certifies only independent farms and is 100% free to farmers: AGW has no financial incentive in certification, resulting in an unrivaled level of independence in auditing.
The Truly Grass-fed Co-Op -
AGN Roots Grass-fed Whey is sourced from farms that are also members of the Truly Grass-fed Co-op. To learn more about the Truly Grass-fed operations in Ireland, please visit this website www.trulygrassfed.com.
The AGW Animal Welfare Approved Seal -
This AGW seal allows us to guarantee that our whey is produced from animals raised outdoors on pasture or range for their entire lives on independently owned farms using truly sustainable, high-welfare farming practices. It is the only label in the U.S. to require auditing and demonstrates our farmer’s commitment to the care of their animals, the land, and the local community. Our farmers are easily distinguished by having a humane and conscientious bond with their animals. When taking AGN Roots Grass-fed Whey, you can rest assured that our cows are happy & healthy with these guarantees:
The Quality is in the Details -
- Our Cows always have access to clean and fresh water.
- Our Cows have continuous outdoor access to unpolluted pastures which is sadly a very common farming practice with farms that rely on liquid manure to fertilize soils.
- Our cows are gently handled in a calm and consistent manner not exposed to loud noises or any quick movements. Even chutes are all designed to minimize stress and to promote healthy normal breathing rhythms during transport from pasture to shelter and visa versa.
- Our cows when inside due to harsh whether are housed with full access to lying areas, loafing areas, feeding areas with space to fulfill their behavioral needs and desires – FREEDOM! These facilities are also lit with natural light.
In the daytime, to assure physiological well-being, our animals ALWAYS have a line of site and access to each other, their food, and their water.
Bedding is also abundant and 100% free of any chemical treatment to ensure comfort.
