Sustainability and farmers’ quality of life

Partner farmers have free collective insurance, which means more help in their activities by reducing the costs of their livestock farms.
The Livestock Farm Management Board provides support to farmers with business and decision-making advice.
All partner farmers can obtain scholarships for their children’s studies, providing financial support and helping to professionalise livestock farms by applying the acquired knowledge.
Due to the daily work and effort involved in the farmers’ activity, Central Lechera Asturiana offers a relief service to replace them and provide support so that they can rest or cover unforeseen events in order to balance their activity with their personal life.

The seal that identifies sustainable livestock
The FARMER GUARANTEE seal has strengthened Central Lechera Asturiana’s commitment to natural nutrition, the comfort of cattle and sustainable family farms since 2018.
It is a quality seal endorsed by the SGS “Agricultural Services and Family Farming Support Management” certification, although a cooperative work method is formalised that Central Lechera Asturiana has developed and perfected, with a range of free services for farmers.
The Farmer Guarantee contributes to caring for the environment. Because Central Lechera Asturiana knows that livestock farming activity helps to establish population in rural areas, avoiding the emigration of young people and depopulation. And so it is easier to take care of the natural environment in which Central Lechera Asturiana carries out its work every day.
