     Milk Testing
HOME PAGEUnique_Maine_Farms.html

Anne Harrington, a field technician from Dairy One, was conducting her monthly visit to Mineral Spring Farm when Unique Maine Farms visited for the second time.  Anne has worked as a milk inspector with Dairy One for the past twenty-five years.  It is a farmer-owned cooperative based in Ithaca, New York.  They provide farmers in New England and parts of Maryland and New York with information that helps with record-keeping of the dairy herd. 

Anne visits each month and takes milk samples from each cow.  She helps with gathering information about animal identification, calvings, pregnancy checks, breedings, dry offs, and milk weights.  She forwards the data that she collects to a processing center.  The center, in turns, sends reports to Mineral Spring Farm that can be used to calculate genetic evaluations.
