    Test for beta lactams tetracycline gentamicin and aflatoxin M1 Open the barn door With the largest FDA AOAC approved temperature range of any test on the market 45 C 5 C you can be confident that SNAP tests produce accurate results even if you don t have consistent air temperatures Testing works Here s what farmers say about SNAP testing Tell us a little about yourself and your farm KEVIN I ve been a farmer for about 22 years I started out at about the age of 12 with one cow and when I got out of high school I had about 25 Now we re at about 320 and growing JOSEPH I ve been farming all my life for about 36 years I grew up on a farm My uncle and my dad had a farm together Then my dad bought my uncle out and I bought my dad out We always had 50 cows Then when we rebuilt we went to 200 cows Why do you test your bulk tank KEVIN At our farm we test with SNAP every morning Why Economics I guess is one way to sum it up With the technical testing they have in the labs today we don t like to take the risk of contaminating a tank We can t afford not to test on the volume of milk we re working with We just can t afford the risk the financial penalties and the risks to my reputation are just too high As we grow in volume and we install another tank testing gets even more important We re looking at an every other day pickup schedule That throws our risk factor even higher with two days worth of milk in each load If a problem does sneak by us somewhere we want to be sure we don t contaminate 48 hours worth of milk JOSEPH If you test you know your load s good and you don t have to worry I don t want to buy somebody else s load of milk it s as simple as that If I didn t have insurance and I didn t test then I would risk having to pay for ruined milk out of my own pocket That could be a big setback What made you start testing KEVIN I had a contaminated load about four years ago and to this day we don t know what went wrong We lost the tank and got another 24 hour penalty on top of that so it ended up being a 48 hour penalty The milk for the next 24 hours in our tank was fine but it still had to be dumped Ever since then we ve been testing Back then we just had to pay for our load Today we d be responsible for the whole works These days I d say you re looking at somewhere around 50 000 pounds and a 6 000 payment JOSEPH I never used to test
