Milk Testing

Milk mineral analysis is an invaluable tool to the modern day dairy farmer. Testing a bulk milk sample is a convenient way to gain an overall idea of the herd health on the farm and to monitor the effectiveness of a livestock nutrition programme. Individual milk samples can also be tested to target problems with under-performing cows.
