Dairy farmers: The minutes that cost you the most

Hi, Dairy Farmers

You could manage your dairy extremely well, but if you do not make sure that a representative sample of your tank milk is taken for payment, then it will all be in vain.

Round tanks should be stirred for at least 5 minutes and long tanks for 10 minutes. Milk should be sampled in a sterile way, from the same place every time – always from the top door or bottom tap.  Get a good procedure that satisfies you and your buyer and make sure that everybody sticks to it.  Always try to be present when a sample is taken.

Have you had your milk today?

Kind regards,

Leon the Milkman
