Certified Livestock Producer Workshops (CLPP)

The Indiana State Department of Agriculture (ISDA) is hosting a series of producer workshops across the state as part of the Certified Livestock Producer Program (CLPP), a voluntary program that recognizes farmers for their commitment to innovative and top industry standards.

Each workshop is free of charge and will include industry experts in the five areas of focus for the CLPP program: commitment to the environment, animal well-being, food safety, emergency planning, biosecurity and being a good neighbor in their community.

“The Certified Livestock Producer Program gives an opportunity for livestock producers to publicly demonstrate their commitment to their farm, their family and the future,” said CLPP Program Manager, John Nagle.” The instructional sessions are the first step toward completing the program, and offer valuable insight from experts in the livestock industry that will benefit each producer’s operation and community.”
