President Honors AWA Farmers

Chad and Jodi Ray, owners of Animal Welfare Approved Ray Family Farms, were honored by the Obama administration as “Champions of Change” in connection with the president’s Winning the Future initiative. Chad and Jodi, who pasture-raise laying hens, beef cattle, and pigs in Louisburg, North Carolina, were singled out for their commitment to “animal welfare, heritage livestock breeds, and environmental stewardship.” They accepted the award along with six other individuals at the White House on April 12.
