On-Farm Antibiotic Testing

On-farm milk testing of individual cows is a growing requirement from some milk buyers as they look to curb the number of bulk tank failures due to antibiotic residues. Carrying out on-farm testing for antibiotics on individual cows and the bulk tank is a belt and braces approach to avoid issues. However, it is illegal to put milk back in the tank before the end of the milk withdrawal, even if a cow has passed an on-farm test.

This dairy insight examines how to avoid antibiotic failures and looks at the on-farm test kits available and helps you choose the right one for your farm.
