Representative Milk Sampling Solutions for Dairy Farms

Dairy farmers need to take raw milk samples to ensure they meet certain regulatory standards. Farmers and veterinarians regularly use QualiTru sampling systems to collect “representative” composite milk samples for quality and bonus payments, regulatory purposes, herd health management, and to isolate contamination within the milking process.

QualiTru’s representative sampling system and the PMO

QualiTru’s representative sampling system is approved for use by the Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO). See Regulatory Approvals.

Why is this important? According to the PMO…

“It shall be the responsibility of the bulk milk hauler/sampler to collect a representative sample of milk from each bulk milk tank and/or silo or from a properly installed and operated in-line sampler or aseptic sampler, that is approved for use by the NCIMS Conference, State Regulatory Agency and FDA to collect representative samples, prior to transferring milk utilizing an aseptic sampler from a farm bulk milk tank and/or silo truck or other container.”
