Specialized Services Available to Dairy Farmers:

Our services are designed to provide Dairy Farmers with a full complement of analytical and diagnostic services in a timely, prompt, cost effective manner.   Specialized services include the microbiological analysis, monitoring, and interpretation of bulk tank milk, individual milk cultures, milking equipment, feed, water, and environmental samples.  The purpose of these tests is to validate sanitation efforts and milking procedures, assess treatment efforts, and evaluate the abundance and distribution of specific bacterial organisms in the udders of herd individuals, bulk tank milk, and the dairy farm environment.  By performing these tests, the intent is to assure high-quality dairy milk, sanitary milking equipment, and a healthy herd.   Estimated test time is dependent on test.

Estimated test time is dependent on specific test and on when test is initiated. Samples received in late afternoon or evening will not be started until the following morning, unless RUSH/STAT analysis is requested, in which an additional fee is applied.
