To start testing or discuss your testing options, please contact us to discuss a testing plan that will work for you.
Information we may need to help determine the services we can offer:
Number of animals, milking and dry

Need for meters - Do you need meters brought in or do you have electronic meters?
Approximate milking times and length of milking

Breed, birth dates, and the most recent freshening date of all animals
Any extra breeding or other information you want to track
Herd codes and old index numbers for transfer animals
