New measures in place for Milk Sampling Services
New measures have been brought in around Glanbia Ireland’s milk sampling service.
Glanbia Ireland has temporarily halted the acceptance of any milk samples delivered by farmers in person to our various processing sites for transportation to our laboratory service in Dungarvan.
In addition, farmers are requested not to drop samples directly to the laboratory. This measure is in line with our restrictions on all visitors to our production sites as a precautionary measure in light of Coronavirus (Covid-19).
Please contact your Milk Quality Manager by telephone to discuss alternative testing options.
They may be able to assist by providing you with an antibiotic kit for home use or by arranging to test your sample themselves. This will be on a limited basic and each call will be risk assessed.
|Please contact your Milk Quality Manager with regards any suspected milk quality issues to get the milk risk assessed before collection – e.g. Antibiotics, tank failure, temperature issues etc|
